VIDEO: Driver Shot, Killed After Wild Chase Across Houston

Police officers fatally shot a man who tried to run them over after smashing into dozens of cars while leading officers on a chase through southwest Houston Sunday morning, police say.

According to Houston police, the chase started after officers got reports about a Toyota Tundra driving the wrong way on Highway 59 near Chimney Rock. Officers said he was intentionally striking other vehicles on the road, reports KPRC.

Police said when they found the wrong-way driver he led them on a chase that lasted about 30 minutes. The driver hit several other moving and parked vehicles, including HPD units, along the way.

The pursuit ended on Beechnut and Beltway 8 when officers boxed the driver in and repeatedly told him to get out of the truck.

Police said the man, identified as 63-year-old Virgil Lee Reynolds, tried to drive in reverse into some officers who were on foot. The officers, fearing for their lives, shot at Reynolds.

Officers said Reynolds rammed his truck through the patrol cars, crossed the road, and then stopped.

Reynolds suffered one gunshot wound and was taken to Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital, where he died, investigators said.

How did they get so lucky as to have no one killed in this insane driving by this idiot. If he wasn't drunk or drugged then he must have spilled his marbles somewhere along the path.

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. Glad no one else was seriously hurt.
