February 3, 2020 - Houston police are investigating a fatal crash that occurred at 3700 F.M. 1092 about 10:40 p.m. on Saturday (Feb. 1).

The identity of the deceased male, 20, is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.

HPD Vehicular Crimes Division Sergeant D. Rose and Officer C. Sartor reported:

An officer observed a stolen silver Chevrolet Malibu traveling on Stella Link Road and 610 South Loop.  When the officer attempted a traffic stop on the vehicle, the driver sped away from the officer.  Two male passengers, 16 years of age, exited the vehicle at 10000 Bassoon Drive and fled on foot.  They were later located and arrested. 

The suspect driver continued to evade officers and threw a gun out of the vehicle on Willowbend Boulevard and Main Street.  The gun was recovered.

The suspect traveled southbound on F.M. 1092 until his stolen vehicle crashed into a light pole at the intersection with State Highway 6 South, in Missouri City.  Officers and paramedics attempted life saving efforts at the scene, but the driver was pronounced deceased at Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital.

As is customary when an individual dies in the presence of officers, the incident is being investigated by the HPD Internal Affairs Division and the Harris County District Attorney's Office.
