A homeless man and additional witnesses sprung into action to rescue a Houston sheriff’s deputy who was involved in a deadly crash Wednesday night while chasing a robbery suspect at high speeds.
The crash occurred at Laura Koppe and Lockwood and killed an innocent woman and injured two young children, ages two and five, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO). Officials say the five-year-old remains in critical condition while the two-year-old is stable, according to KTRK.
Chilling surveillance footage that captured part of the crash shows the deputy’s vehicle covered in flames barreling through a store parking lot and colliding into parked cars, KTRK reports. A homeless man named Johnny Walker was at the scene and recounted the crash to the outlet.
