MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican authorities are investigating police in the northern city of Reynosa on the Texas border after a pregnant 14-year-old American girl was shot and injured during a high-speed car chase, the local government said on Tuesday.

The incident took place late on Sunday near the bridge that links Reynosa with the United States, when the girl and a friend were pulling away from a convenience store in a pick-up truck, the attorney general's office in the state of Tamaulipas said.
