December 4, 2006 -- Houston police are investigating a fatal traffic accident in the 4700 block of Mangum about 8:50 p.m. on Sunday (December 3).

One suspect, Robert Mckay, 15, died at the scene. Three other suspects were in
the stolen vehicle at the time of the accident and were not injured.

HPD Mobility Incident Management Division Sergeant P. Casares and Officer O.D.
Lewis reported:

Officers were patrolling in the area of Antoine and Acorn when they checked the license plate of a vehicle which was reported stolen. The officers attempted to stop the vehicle, but the suspects fled east on Acorn at a high rate of speed. Upon reaching the intersection at Mangum and Acorn, the suspects attempted to turn south but lost control of the vehicle. As the vehicle entered a field at 4702 Mangum, the suspects attempted to jump out of the moving vehicle. The back drivers side door struck a large metal pole as Mckay attempted to exit the vehicle. He fell to the ground as the other three suspects fled on foot. Two were taken into custody and later released while the fourth, believed to be the driver, managed to escape officers.

The investigation is continuing.
