Man dies fleeing HPD, hit by two cars on freeway

Houston, TX – A man is declared dead after a police chase ends as he is struck by two vehicles on the freeway.

Last night around 10:30 p.m. officials responded to an exposure call at a Whataburger near Wayside Dr. Upon arrival authorities made eye contact with the suspect, but he fled the scene immediately on foot.

The suspect then proceeded to run onto the main lanes of the East Fwy and then crossed over onto the westbound lanes.

HPD opted to detour around in attempt to meet the suspect on the other side of the freeway. However, the suspect laid down in the middle of the eastbound main lanes of East Fwy. 

The male suspect was then struck by an 18 wheeler and then run over by a white sedan. HFD declared him deceased at the scene.

Neither driver was charged, but an investigation will take place.
