FROM TYLER MORNING TELEGRAPH:

SMITH COUNTY (KYTX) - One man is dead and another in the hospital following a high-speed chase and wreck Saturday evening.

Around 7:30 p.m., a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper attempted to pull over a Chrysler for a routine traffic stop on Farm-to-Market Road 346 South, near Bullard, said DPS Spokeswoman Jean Dark.

The car, with two men inside, did not pull over and a chase began. Police set up spikes to stop the car, but it continued on.

“It successfully deflated three tires, and normally people stop or they slow down because their vehicle is disabled, but this (vehicle) kept on,” Trooper Dark said.

The vehicle crashed after failing to navigate a curb and rolled several times.

Precinct 2 Justice of the Peace Gary Alfred pronounced the driver dead at the scene, and his passenger was taken to a local hospital, Trooper Dark said. His condition was not known.

After a search of the car, four pounds of hydroponic marijuana was found.



SMITH COUNTY (KYTX) - One male driver is dead and his passenger was injured after a high speed chase on FM 346 north of Teaselville.

People who know the victim said, the driver and the passenger had drugs inside the car. As law enforcement tried to stop the duo, they drove off leading troopers on a chase before ultimately wrecking the car.

The driver is said to have died on scene, the passenger was taken to an east Texas hospital and is being treated for multiple injuries.

CBS19 is speaking with the family of the surviving victim and is working to bring you additional updates.
