3 seriously hurt in crash involving fleeing vehicle at north Houston intersection
HOUSTON, TX — Three people injured, two critically, early Friday when their car was struck during a police chase in north Houston, according to ABC13.
Humble police were pursuing two suspects in a vehicle when the pursuit ended in a crash at Ella Boulevard and West Rankin Road in north Houston at around 3:00 a.m., shortly after Houston Police had joined the chase.
According to officials, the fleeing vehicle ran a red light at the intersection and struck a Toyota with three people inside.
Both vehicles sustained significant damage, and one of the Toyota’s occupants had to be extricated from the wreckage. The extricated patient was rushed by Life Flight to an area hospital, where they were listed in critical condition.
The Toyota’s two other occupants, one of whom also suffered critical injuries, were also transported to a local hospital.
Neither of the two suspects were reported hurt, but both were quickly apprehended and taken into custody at the scene. The HPD said at least one of the suspects faces charges of “aggravated assault with serious bodily injury.”
The Humble Police Department is leading an investigation in the pursuit and crash, with assistance from the Houston Police Department.
