A man died after his car crashed into a U-Haul truck and flipped the car on its side as he was reportedly trying to avoid arrest at the Bexar County Sheriff’s office on Thursday, Jan. 12. This was announced at a press briefing by Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar.

The harassment occurred shortly before 1:00 a.m. after a traffic safety unit stopped a vehicle traveling at over 60 mph in a 35 mph zone. Salazar said the deputy saw the drugs in plain sight as he approached the passenger side. Deputies said the driver said the drugs were prescription drugs. He also told deputies that he had a gun.

Salazar said the police asked the man to get out of the car, to which he said no and drove away at high speed. Police chased the man for several blocks before the driver lost control and crashed into a pole, then into a U-Haul truck and flipped his car on its side, Salazar said.

Officials said the crash caused the driver to jump out of the car about a mile from the scene. Upon arrival, he was declared dead. Salazar said they thought the man was in his 20s or 30s.
