According to local law enforcement, a vehicle fleeing from police in Houston, Texas, was hit by three wallets.
Houston Assistant Police Chief Yasser Bashir told a news conference Friday that all three were pronounced dead at the scene after they were allegedly hit by a car trying to get away from police.
A police sergeant in a night shift turned on his lights Friday night after seeing the driver donating in a private parking lot.
Bashir said the car sped up after officers turned on the lights in an attempt to escape.
The car hit three wallets before entering the pit.
Police say the car appeared to be traveling at miles0 miles per hour when it crashed, but the driver and passengers were found to have fatal consequences – they were taken to hospital with minor injuries.
“We’re here because a person has decided not to get a ticket or go to a potential prison,” said Sean Tere, head of the Harris County District Attorney’s Vehicle Crime Division.
The driver could face up to three counts of criminal murder and investigators are determining whether he was disabled at the time of the incident.
