HCPD - Update: Evading Arrest/Major Collision/Intoxication Assault

Media Advisory/Press Release
January 21, 2019
4100 block of Denton Hwy.
817-222-7000

On Wednesday, January 16, 2019, at approximately 10:40 PM, Haltom City officers observed a gray Honda Accord that was traveling at a high rate of speed in the 4100 block of Denton Highway. When officers attempted to initiate a traffic stop, the vehicle failed to yield. Due to the erratic driving, the officers believed the vehicle to be operated by an intoxicated driver. After the pursuit went through an adjacent neighborhood, the driver of the vehicle turned back onto Denton Highway northbound. As the pursuit was approaching the Watauga city limits, the officers lost sight of the vehicle due to the vehicle’s excessive speed.

As the officers were returning to Haltom City, they observed the suspect vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed southbound on Denton Highway. Officers re-initiated the pursuit following behind the suspect vehicle. After the suspect vehicle passed the NE Loop 820/Denton Highway bridge, the suspect vehicle collided with a black Dodge pickup that was slowing to turn into an apartment complex. Due to the collision, the black Dodge pickup caught on fire. Officers arriving on scene were able to remove the driver of the pickup from the vehicle before the pickup was fully engulfed in fire. The suspect was removed from his vehicle with injuries to his face caused by the deployment of the airbag.

Both the driver of the pickup and the driver of the suspect vehicle were transported to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth. The driver of the pickup, a white female 30 years of age from Haltom City, did not appear to have any obvious injuries on scene, but once she arrived at the hospital, she was found to have internal injuries. Her condition was unknown at the time of this release. The suspect, a white male 30 years of age from North Richland Hills, was arrested on charges of Intoxication Assault with Serious Bodily Injury and Evading Arrest with a Vehicle. His identification will be released once he has been arraigned by a magistrate.
