New video shows Fort Worth chase that ended with deadly crash in Stockyards

FOX 4 has obtained more surveillance images of the pursuit that led to a deadly crash in the Fort Worth Stockyards on Thursday.

The crash involved a stolen pickup possibly linked to a burglary officers say was running from them. Gaudencia Meza, 58, was killed when that stolen pickup slammed into the Jeep she was in with her husband.

Surveillance video of the police chase, seconds before a crash that killed an innocent woman, gives another perspective of the chase that Fort Worth police say is being investigated thoroughly.

Video shows a white pickup speeding southbound on Main Street. The lead police unit in the chase enters the frame soon after. A moment later there’s a second police car and trailing further behind is a third officer.

Police say the pickup crashed into several cars at the intersection of main and exchange in the Fort Worth Stockyards. A woman in a dark colored jeep was killed.

Police say Luis Young, 26, was driving the white pickup which had been reported stolen. Police haven’t released a current mugshot because he’s still in the hospital.

“Our policies are always constantly evaluated and that’s what’s happening here. This pursuit, we’ll look at all that took place round it see if everything fell in line with policies and procedures if not the case will be handled administratively,” said FWPD Sgt. Chris Britt.

Young is named in an earlier warrant for a burglary that happened last month.

Police say items found in the truck after the crash have been traced back to a burglary that occurred sometime Thursday morning before police tried to stop him and he ran from them.
