HOUSTON, TX – One person was killed and another three were injured in a crash that happened during a police pursuit on Wilcrest Drive early Monday morning, according to the City of Houston.

The incident began at a gas station in the 10400 block of Richmond Avenue, when officers reportedly noticed a white Cadillac STS that was illegally parked. They activated emergency lights, then went to investigate, and that was when the driver of the Cadillac fled, prompting a pursuit.

The driver then ran a red light on Meadowglen Lane and the 2700 block of Wilcrest Dr, and the Cadillac crashed into a white BMW 5281.

The driver of the BMW died at the scene.

The driver of the Cadillac, whom authorities identified as 20-year-old Cameron Rogers, was taken to the hospital in stable condition, as were his two passengers, an 18-year-old woman and a 21-year-old man.

Rogers is facing a felony murder charge in connection with the fatal collision.

He was reportedly not showing signs of being under the influence when the crash occurred.

The collision remains under investigation at this time.
