SOUTH HOUSTON, Texas – A family, including a 10-year-old girl, was injured after a chase suspect crashed into their vehicle, going 130 to 140 mph in south Houston early Sunday.
The chase started around 1:20 a.m. in Dickinson when deputies attempted to stop a Chevrolet pickup truck for traffic violations near Termini Street and Highway 3, police said.
The driver, identified as Juan Alvizo, 28, of La Porte, refused to stop for officials, and the chase began near Highway 3 and Deats and ended at Highway 3 and Mississippi Street, police said.
The truck was involved in a crash, ending the chase, hitting a car near Highway 3 and Edgebrook, police said. Monica Bustos, her boyfriend, Mike Garcia and their daughter Annabella,10, were in that other car. The family was heading home from a friend’s house when their car was hit, flipping multiple times.
“I don’t even remember him hitting me,” said Garcia, who was driving. “I don’t even remember seeing no lights. I think I blacked out from there when he hit me.”
Garcia was treated for a broken rib. Bustos has several bruises on her face. Both are in wheelchairs.
