Suspect killed in police chase that reached 100 mph

Suspect killed in Garland police chase

GARLAND, Texas -- A suspect was killed after leading officers on a chase and crashing the car he was driving.

Garland police say officers pulled the suspect over just after 3 a.m. because there wasn't a license plate on his vehicle. He told them he didn't have ID and gave them a name, which turned out to be fake, police said. He then took off, leading officers on a chase for about four blocks into Dallas.

The driver hit speeds of 100 mph during the short chase, before losing control of the car and crashing near Shiloh Road and Perimeter Drive. He was ejected and pronounced dead on the scene. When the vehicle rolled, police say a stolen pistol fell out.

His name hasn't been released. There were no other injuries.
