Chase Leads To Fatal Accident

A fatal accident was the result of a chase that all started when police say a group of people decided to steal a truck.

Captain Richard Foster says three people in an Explorer and another man decided to steal a truck in the 1500 block of 50th St. Foster says the owner of the truck saw the man steal it and began chasing the truck in another vehicle. The three people in the Explorer then began chasing the owner of the truck west on 50th St.

Moments later, the Explorer crashed head on into a Buick, at 50th and Avenue U. The driver of the Explorer, twenty-two year old Mark Moreno, died on the way to the hospital. EMS took his two passengers, eighteen year old Jose Chavez and nineteen year old Christina Madrid to UMC with serious injuries. The driver of the Buick, William Caudell and his wife Helen, both in their seventies, are recovering at Covenant Medical Center. The owner of the truck was not injured, and his truck was recovered.

A member of Lubbock's Auto Theft Task Force says the incident provides an important reminder. "If you have a cell phone call the police and tell us where you are located and that would be fine," said Jerry Johnson with the Auto Theft Task Force.

Lubbock Police are still looking for the person who was driving the truck. He is described as a Hispanic man in his twenties, about five feet four inches tall and 140 pounds.

Call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000 if you have any information about the suspect.
