On October 25, 2012, at approximately 1:43 a.m., Sergeant Jackie Thomas with the Denison Police Department engaged in the pursuit of a vehicle after the suspect vehicle allegedly almost struck Sergeant Thomas' marked police vehicle while stopped at a red light at the intersection of Mirick Avenue and Hull Street. Thomas had to take evasive action to avoid his vehicle being struck by the suspect vehicle. The suspect vehicle proceeded to travel northbound on Mirick Avenue through the downtown area at a high rate of speed and appeared not to attempt to slow down at any intersections. The driver lost control of the vehicle and the vehicle crashed, coming to rest on its roof, near the intersection of Mirick Avenue and Walker Street. The driver fled the scene on foot and was soon located hiding underneath a residence in the 500 block of West Bond Street.

 Denison EMS arrived on scene and removed the alleged driver from underneath the residence because the subject apparently had serious injuries and was unable to remove himself from underneath the residence. Air Evac (helicopter ambulance) was summoned and transported him to Parkland Hospital in Dallas, Texas, where his current condition is unknown.

 The alleged driver, identified as Lionel Moore, 29, from Denison, faces a charge of Evading Arrest/Detention with a Motor Vehicle, a felony punishable by a term of 2-10 years in prison and/or up to a $10,000.00 fine. Other charges may be pending. No one else was injured during the incident and no other vehicles were involved.
