Houston

Two men are dead after a hit-and-run sparked a north Houston police chase that ended in a fiery wreck Sunday morning.

Officers were investigating a crash around 1 a.m. where one of the drivers fled without stopping to exchange information. Afterward, Houston police spotted a suspicious vehicle and tried to make a traffic stop near Crosstimbers and Airline.

Instead of pulling over, the truck sped away and sparked a high-speed pursuit, Executive Assistant Chief Troy Finner of the Houston Police Department told reporters at the scene.
