Fort Worth man was arrested by the local authorities following a 30-mile high-speed chase that started in East Fort Worth and ended in Dallas
FORT WORTH, Texas – After a 30-mile high-speed chase that began in East Fort Worth, a weekend pursuit ended in a fiery collision in Dallas.
Officer Daniel Segura of the Fort Worth Police Department noted, “During the pursuit, we requested assistance from our air support and other patrol officers in the area.”
Saturday night, Fort Worth police officers attempted to pull over 20-year-old Kameron Williams between East Loop 820 and Rosedale Street, but he refused to stop after running many red lights, according to authorities.
From that point through many cities and on both Interstates 20 and 30, the speed exceeded 130 mph. Dallas police said that the pursuit ended around Culver Street and Dolphin Road with no injuries.
“After the pursuit reportedly rendered the vehicle inoperable, the driver was captured. And another car passenger was identified and freed from the scene, “Segura added.
A passenger in the vehicle driven by Williams was held and subsequently released. A review of the entire episode is underway.
“Every time we have a chase, whether it’s short or long distance, we have a board analyze everything that transpired during that call,” Segura explained. “We strive to learn and ensure that our officers adhere to our policies”
Williams faces multiple counts, including driving under the influence and criminal evasion.
No one else was wounded.
