A police pursuit that went from Miami-Dade to Broward appeared to have ended at a parking garage Wednesday afternoon.

The incident started in Miami-Dade and footage showed a white sedan speeding north on Interstate 95, weaving in and out of traffic as it made its way into Broward.

Miami-Dade Police officials said an officer working a traffic detail noticed the car pass by at a high rate of speed, but officers didn't pursue the car by ground.

A Miami-Dade Police helicopter happened to be in the air at the same time and trailed the car, officials said.

The car exited the highway at Griffin Road and drove to a parking garage at a Tri-Rail station as officers responded and locked down the area.

Officials said the driver had abandoned the car and fled the scene.

No other information was immediately known.
