LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - One person has been arrested after a crash that started as a burglary and turned into a pursuit overnight Friday.

Felix Gutierrez, 45, was arrested on multiple charges.

At 12:18 a.m., officers were called to a burglary in progress at Southern Shingles near East 50th and King Ave.

A vehicle was seen taking off from the scene and police began a pursuit that ended in a crash in the 2800 block of East 4th Street. Investigators say Gutierrez, the driver, did not follow the “S” curve in the roadway and crashed. Gutierrez bailed from the car, failing to render aid to passenger Wanda Hereford, 56.

Gutierrez was taken into custody after a short foot chase. He was arrested on the following charges: Fail to stop and render aid; evading by vehicle; evading on foot; and theft. Gutierrez had two prior convictions, according to police.

Hereford was taken to UMC with minor injuries.

The investigation is on-going.
