Suspect dead, baby alive, after Texas pursuit crash

According to reports, the baby's father was the original driver removed from the car prior to the pursuit

By PoliceOne Staff

In a town just outside Houston, police officers with the Magnolia (Texas) Police Department pulled over a vehicle in search of a robbery suspect. During that traffic stop, officers removed the driver from the 2004 Chevy Impala, at which time the passenger reportedly locked the doors to the car and fled. A pursuit ensued. Spike strips were deployed. The suspect vehicle rolled and landed upside down next to fence.

In the back seat was a three-year old girl.

The Texas Department of Public Safety said that in the crash that ended the high-speed pursuit on Sunday, the driver, identified as 33-year-old Derick McMichael, was killed and the three year old was found hanging upside down in her car seat.

The baby was transported via LifeFlight helicopter to Memorial Hermann Hospital, where she is reportedly in stable condition. According to reports, the baby's father was the original driver removed from the car prior to the pursuit. He has been questioned and police are now seeking to determine what relationship he had had with the deceased suspect.
