El Paso motorcycle driver arrested after pursuit across state line that ended in crash

The driver of a motorcycle that led authorities on a pursuit that crossed state lines was arrested.

A pursuit to pull over a driver in El Paso Wednesday afternoon crossed state lines.

A trooper with the Texas Department of Transportation tried to stop a speeding motorcycle along Loop 375 in the northbound lanes before the McCombs exit northeast El Paso, but the driver refused to stop, said Lt. Elizabeth Carter.

The pursuit crossed into Dona Ana County ending when the driver crashed around 3:15 p.m. along Interstate 10 West just before the Vado Exit.

The driver was identified as Justin Anthony Arab, 29, of El Paso.

Arab was taken to a local hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in the crash, Carter said. Once released from the hospital, he will be charged with evading and booked into the Dona Ana Detention Center.
