Police in Dickinson said the chase began there Sunday at about 8:20 p.m., when an officer tried to pull over the Durango because the driver did not have the headlights on and was operating the SUV erratically. It ended a few minutes later in nearby League City, when the Durango struck a Honda Accord and then slammed into a light pole.
"He was going so fast my guy couldn't keep up," Dickinson Police Capt. J. Jaekel told the Galveston Daily News.
Reagan Pena, a spokesman for League City police, said the collision killed four people in the Accord, a 15-year-old boy, his parents and an uncle. The 23-year-old driver of the Durango and his cousin, both League City residents, also died.
Homes and businesses in the area lost power because of the crash.
