State Police involved in a high-speed car chase on the Mérida Periferico

Members of the Yucatán State Police engaged in a high-speed pursuit on the western ring road of Mérida.

According to the information obtained, after passing through the Public Security Complex, the individual was traveling at over 170 kilometers per hour (105 miles per hour) in the inner lane, which drew the attention of the authorities and led to the pursuit.

A convoy from the Secretariat of Public Security (SSP) began following the vehicle, but he did not stop and continued until making a U-turn in the inner lane. He was finally apprehended upon making the U-turn in the Tixcacal-Opichén exit, near the Moon Hotel, where SSP officers intercepted him.

After the vehicle came to a stop, the man was arrested and placed in a police car.

As there is no official report, it was unofficially said that the man allegedly had drugs in the vehicle.

When the man finally stopped, SSP officers closed off the entrance to Tixcacal Opichén while the vehicle in question was towed away by an SSP crane and taken to the municipal impound lot.

It should be noted that the pursuit involved SSP agents from the western and southern sectors of Mérida.
