HOUSTON (CBS Houston) A police chase that began in Pasadena ended in a fatal crash on a Houston freeway Monday. According to police, an officer noticed a Chevy Impala traveling the wrong way on a one-way street in Pasadena Monday afternoon.

The man and woman in the car then lead the Pasadena police officer down Highway 225 in Houston. Officers then determined that the vehicle was stolen. The vehicle then traveled over the 610 bridge, driving erratically. Officers quickly determined that it was not unsafe to confront the driver at that time.

Shortly after, the vehicle exited the freeway and struck a barricade. As a result of the crash, one person was ejected from the car and died. The other person died inside the vehicle.

There were no other cars involved in the crash.Further reports indicate that police officers were able to quickly determine that the stolen vehicle involved in the crash was the same vehicle involved in a carjacking earlier in the day in the Houston area.
