JONES COUNTY, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – A passenger has died after a high-speed pursuit that ended in a crash in Jones County Wednesday morning.

Aaron Earl Rattler, 27, of Garland, Texas, was pronounced dead at the hospital following the crash on Hwy 277 in Jones County around 7:00 a.m.

Rattler was the passenger in a vehicle that crashed when driver Jacobe Jabar Johnson, 22, was trying to evade law enforcement at a high rate of speed.

The Texas Department of Public Safety states a trooper attempted to pull Johnson’s vehicle over near mile marker 273 on I-20, but instead of stopping, he evaded at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour.

Johnson eventually led authorities onto Hwy 277 in Jones County, where he caused a crash by hitting two vehicles while trying to get around some spike strips.

Both drivers of the vehicles struck by Johnson were hospitalized and their current conditions are unknown.

Rattler and Johnson were hospitalized as well, where Rattler later died from his injuries.

After he was released from the hospital, Johnson was booked into the Jones County Jail for Evading Arrest with Vehicle Causing Death. Additional charges will also be issued as the investigation continues.

No further information has been released.
