BERTRAM, Texas (KXAN) — A Burnet County deputy on her way to a police chase was involved in a crash in Bertram, Wednesday.

The Burnet County Sheriff’s Office says the deputy, who has not been named, crashed with multiple vehicles in the intersection of Grange Street and State Highway 29 while she was en route to the call.

Authorities were chasing two suspects in a stolen vehicle, who crashed and were running away near County Road 321, a little more than a mile south of Bertram.

The deputy involved in the crash on SH 29 was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. She was treated and released the same day, the sheriff’s office said.

No one else was injured and an investigation into the crash is ongoing.

Thursday evening, the sheriff’s office identified the two suspects in the chase as Randy Wayne Johns, 45, and Daniel Ray Castillo, 41. They are both considered armed and dangerous.

One of the suspects was seen on West FM 243 near Bertram at around 4 p.m. Thursday. They may have guns obtained in a burglary in Llano County. Do not approach these men if you see them and call 911 immediately.
