Chase ends with suspect injured.
Odessa Police Officers were hard at work once again this morning. It all started when a suspect, 19-year-old Ervey Luna, fled from officers in a vehicle and led them on a chase. The incident began at UTPB. Eventually, Luna lost control and crashed into a light pole at the MCM Elegante parking lot. Here’s a look at the aftermath. No officers were injured.
There was also a passenger in the vehicle who was trying to get out, but couldn't because
Luna wouldn't stop. The passenger was waving for officers to help. Luna was hurt in the crash and taken to the hospital. The passenger was not injured and was not charged.
The suspect was charged with evading in a motor vehicle and kidnapping. He also had warrants for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, interference with 911, and injury to a child.
OPD and Odessa Fire Rescue responded to the crash. The investigation continues.
