NACOGDOCHES, Texas — After risking his own life to rescue a wanted man from a fiery crash, Nacogdoches Police officer John Allen is being nominated for a state award.

Allen was among the officers pursuing a shoplifting suspect who took off from a grocery store on May 31 and headed to a neighborhood in south Nacogdoches.

When Allen reached the bottom of a hill at East Seale Street and Press Road, he drove up on the suspect's wrecked Chevrolet HHR. A dash cam video recording from Allen's squad car shows the mangled red vehicle smoking, cradled by twisted tree limbs and debris from the high-speed crash.
