VIDEO: Dash Cam Video Captures Last Minutes of Deadly Texas Pursuit

Police have released about a minute of video footage of a nasty wreck that killed two San Marcos, Texas, men following a police pursuit through the Rio Vista Terrace neighborhood early June 23.

Recorded with the dashboard-mounted camera of a pursuing San Marcos officer’s police cruiser, the video shows a 2003 Ford pickup truck racing down Cheatham Street and then flying through the air near the intersection with Rio Vista Street after running over a raised median.

The airborne vehicle hits a large limestone block in the center of a roundabout as a flash of flames illuminates the screen. About 10 seconds after the impact, a second police car pulls up and an officer rushes to the driver’s side door of the vehicle. In the last few seconds of the clip, at least four officers swarm the smoking truck and then the clip ends abruptly, the San Marcos Mercury reports.

The driver, 39-year-old Fabian Hernandez, and a passenger, 43-year-old Charles Lee Crayton, were pronounced dead the scene. Both were longtime San Marcos residents. An officer had attempted to pull over the pickup at the intersection of Hopkins Street and C.M. Allen because he suspected the driver was intoxicated, police chief Chase Stapp said.
