GATESVILLE, TX (KXXV) -

A 29-year-old man died after a high speed chase with Gatesville Police on Friday night. Police said the motorcycle the man was driving was reported stolen.

The deceased has been identified as Trey Short of Temple.

According to police, an officer saw the motorcycle driven by Short traveling at a high speed on the 1000 block of W. Main St at 9:42 p.m.

When the officer attempted to stop Short, police said he sped up, attempting to elude him.

A minute later, the motorcycle hit the rear fender of a minivan making a left turn from E. 8th St. onto S. Lovers Lane, which caused the minivan to spin and overturn.

Short was thrown from the bike, and the two Gatesville residents in the minivan were transported to Coryell Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Short was one of the bikers indicted on Nov. 10, 2015 on charges of engaging in organized criminal activity stemming from the Twin Peaks shootout that occurred in 2015. According to court records, in May of 2015, a search warrant was executed for Short's Cossacks wallet, bandana and knife sheath. A source told News Channel 25 Short was a member of the Cossacks. 

Police said when they began their investigation, they discovered the Harley Davidson motorcycle Short was driving had been reported as stolen out of Waco back in June. The motorcycle was displaying a fictitious license plate at the time, according to police.

The Texas Department of Public Safety is investigating the crash.
