An early-morning car chase on Thursday morning (February 14, 2013) resulted in a car accident that left two men dead. Police said that Ricky Zavala and Antonio Rivera were identified as the two deceased men in the first vehicle and Ronald Wilson was identified as the injured driver of the second vehicle.
Scene of the Accident
According to reports, the car chase began when Zavala and Rivera were allegedly caught breaking into a vehicle at about 2:00 a.m. A homeowner spotted them and confronted the men, causing them to flee in a Toyota Corolla and head south on Bammel N Houston Road. The homeowner gave chase and as the two cars sped along Bammel, the Corolla ran a red light at the access road for the Sam Houston Tollway and was hit by an eastbound Chevrolet truck. The accident left Zavala dead at the scene and River was taken to a hospital, where he later passed away. The driver of the truck, Ronald Wilson, was taken to a hospital with non life-threatening injuries. Police said that the matter is still under investigation and it wasn’t clear if the homeowner chasing Rivera and Zavala was the owner of the car that was being burglarized that night.
