17-year-old charged with murder after police chase ends in crash; innocent driver killed



PASADENA, Texas – An innocent driver was killed in a crash following a police chase in Pasadena on Sunday morning, according to the Webster Police Department.

Officers said they attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a stolen vehicle, but the driver, identified as 17-year-old Christian Evan Romero, refused to stop, leading them on a chase.

While approaching a red light at the intersection of Beltway 8 and Spender Highway in Pasadena, officers said they backed off Romero’s vehicle to slow down for a red light at the intersection, but Romero accelerated and caused a major three-vehicle crash.

The driver of one of the vehicles suffered major injuries and died at the scene.

Romero was arrested and charged with murder, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, felony evading arrest with a motor vehicle and an outstanding felony warrant out of Dimmit County for unauthorized use of a vehicle.

Investigators said a 15-year-old girl who was listed as a runaway from San Antonio was also inside the vehicle with Romero.
