Houston police said the driver ran at least four red lights on Dairy Ashford Road before crashing into a tree.

HOUSTON — A person accused of running multiple red lights died after crashing his car into a tree during a police chase Saturday morning in the Westchase area.

The crash happened shortly before 2 a.m. in the 3400 block of S. Dairy Ashford Road near the Westpark Tollway.

Investigators say police were responding to a name trouble when they noticed a car running red at Briar Forest Drive.

“They turned on their sirens and tried to stop,” Houston Police Asst. said Chef Patricia Cantu. “The vehicle continued to accelerate [and] turned on three additional lights.

At one point, Cantu said officers began to lose sight of the suspect’s car and slowed down. Investigators said the driving force continued to rush.

Moments later, police reportedly discovered the car had crashed into a tree on S. Dairy Ashford Road.

Houston firefighters responded to the scene and attempted to free the driver who Cantu said was trapped in the car. While attempting to extract the suspect, firefighters declared the driving force lifeless at the scene.

Investigators believe he was the only individual contained in the automobile. They are nevertheless trying to prove the identity of the suspect.

“If an officer tries to stop, please stop,” Cantu said. “This fatality, it really shouldn’t happen. Please stop. Please avoid trying to hit another person or anything…they were lighting three fires in a row, and it could have hurt and injured another person.
