Bell County police chase ends in dangerous crash, suspect dies

NOLANVILLE, TX (KXXV) -

A man who ran from police Sunday was pronounced dead Monday morning after flipping his SUV.

Officers were reportedly looking for 36-year-old Mark Love who may have been involved in a felony theft at the Sprint Store in Harker Heights around 2:29 p.m..

Police were able to spot his White Chevy Trailblazer near the Hunter's Glen apartment complex off Bacon Ranch Road in Killeen.

According to officials, Love then pulled a 20-gauge shotgun on police and eventually took off on foot.

Love was able to get back into his SUV and make his way onto Highway 190 eastbound.

The chase hit speeds in excess of 100 mph and officers from the Killeen, Harker Heights and Nolanville Police Departments were involved.

It all came to end when Love tried to get off the Main Street exit of Highway 190.

Police were able to block off the exit but when Love tried to change directions he lost control and flipped his SUV several times.

The mangle mess ended up flipping into the westbound lanes of traffic and the driver was pinned inside.

It took rescue crews several minutes to cut off the doors and extricate him.

Love was eventually airlifted to Scott & White Hospital in Temple with life threatening injuries.

He was admitted into the hospital's Intensive Care Unit.

Both Killeen Police and Texas DPS Troopers remained on scene to investigate.

Authorities were able to recover a shotgun that was thrown from the vehicle.
