CHASE ENDS IN VIOLENT CRASH: 7 VEHICLES INVOLVED

An innocent driver was killed, and two children and a deputy are in the hospital after a chase last night involving a robbery suspect ended in a violent crash.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said that at about 10:42 p.m. deputies were responding to a call of an aggravated robbery at a CVS in the 10800 block of the Eastex Freeway and Tidwell.

According to the authorities’ deputy saw a man leaving the CVS wearing a mask and getting into a car that matched the description he heard on the scanner. When the deputy tried to stop him, the man kept going which led to the pursuit.

Gonzalez says that at 10:49 p.m., the deputy called in that they were chasing someone, possibly in a Lincoln town car. By 10:52 p.m., the deputy’s radio went silent.

Houston police reported that the deputy chasing the suspect got into a crash with a black car on Laura Koppe and Lockwood in northeast Houston. Five more vehicles were hit.

The woman who was driving the black car was killed. The vehicle was carrying two children, a 2-year-old and a 5-year-old. Authorities say the 5-year-old is in critical condition, and the 2-year-old is stable. After the crash, the deputy’s patrol car briefly caught fire. When his unit car also slammed into parked cars in the parking lot of a store. Witnesses saw a lot of fire and smoke, and deputy was pulled to safety by fast-acting good Samaritans and was taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital afterward.

Three other adults were also transported for treatment and evaluation. The suspect left the scene, and officials are looking for him. Investigation is ongoing.
