One person was killed, another injured following a high speed chase in Smith County late Saturday evening.

The accident happened just after 7:30 p.m. Saturday evening off of FM 346 near County Road 188 in Bullard.

State Troopers attempted to pull over two men after they failed to obey a traffic signal. When troopers tried to pull the car over, the driver began speeding away.

Troopers chased the vehicle for several minutes, before laying out a set of spike strips. The driver ran over the strips, popping three of the tires, but he still continued to speed from officers.

The driver soon lost control of the vehicle and ran off the road flipping the car multiple times.

The driver was killed in the accident, while the passenger was taken to a local hospital. His condition is unknown at this time.

While investigating the accident, troopers found 4 pounds of marijuana inside the vehicle.

Yea you are probably correct on the punishment for 4lbs. of pot, but you also need to have all the story before commenting on something that you read in the paper or anywhere. The news people can only go by the info they are given, even if it is false. They were not told the whole truth, there are some state troopers who are trying to cover there own ass, and this is not the first time. The truth will come out.

I was the passenger.the police.put the spike strips.on a corner.we.never had.a chance.they
Killed my friend.

Under current Texas law a person caught with 4 lbs. of pot is a felon and can expect a lifetime of unemployment after they get out of jail. Maybe killing yourself is the better option. Meanwhile in Colorado, having 4 lbs. of pot makes you an entrepreneur.
