The male suspect, Eric Gipson, 19, of Houston, was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

HPD Vehicular Crimes Division Sergeant J. Law and Officer D. Nguyen reported:

A Northeast Patrol Division police officer observed Gipson operating a white Yamaha off-road motorcycle at a high rate of speed and failing to stop at stop signs. The officer attempted to initiate a traffic stop when Gipson refused to stop. The officer followed Gipson a short distance down Homestead Road and then westbound on Langley. Gipson then made a U-turn on Langley and began traveling eastbound. The officer continued following Gipson eastbound on Langley when the officer observed him run a red light at the intersection of Homestead Road. Gipson then struck a blue Buick LeSabre traveling southbound on Homestead.

The driver and four passengers of the Buick were taken to Lyndon B. Johnson General Hospital with minor injuries.
