Just before midnight, Wednesday, July 31, a pizza delivery woman was delivering to Kingwood Hospital. As she exited her vehicle to get the pizza, a male who had been transported to the hospital from an earlier crash in Splendora, exited the hospital, jumped into her car and drove off. She immediately called Houston Police who responded. Having vehicle tracking on a phone, Houston Police determined the vehicle was stopped on Sorters Road in Montgomery County. They notified Montgomery County who responded to the location. As Montgomery County Precinct 4 deputies approached, the KIA sped off. A pursuit ensued ending when the driver turned into private property across the street from the Porter Fire Station on Sorters Road and crashed into a picnic table under a covered patio. The driver fled on foot. Deputies sealed the area off and started searching.
They were assisted by Houston Police, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office and DPS including a DPS helicopter. Harris County responded with two K-9 units and was able to locate the male. He was transported to the Montgomery County Jail wearing a hood after he attempted to spit on deputies. The vehicle suffered heavy front end damage and was towed by Valentin Towing.
