Early this week, a violent crash took the life of one teenager near Cypress, Texas, and left another in critical condition at a local hospital. The wreck occurred last Saturday, on Queenslake and Cypress Rosehill in Harris County.
Around 10:30 p.m., a Harris County Precinct 4 deputy noticed a car driving at high speeds towards him, according to police reports. He turned his own vehicle around, giving chase to the speeding teenagers. The car the girls were driving flipped, however, on Queenslake Drive. The deputy allegedly turned off his lights and sirens – driving off.
In an up-to-date news conference, Sheriff Ed Gonzalez claimed the deputy in question witnessed the accident but did not stop to administer aid. He said, “From everything we’ve heard today, it seems the deputy constable was aware of what had occurred.”
Precinct 4 was kind enough to release dash cam video of the accident in question. Despite the evidence, no charges have been filed. The case remains under investigation by the Harris County District Attorney’s Office.
The driver, Jenna Ellsmore, was airlifted to a nearby hospital in critical condition. The passenger, Lily Haugen, died at the scene.
