HOUSTON (CBS Houston) According to officials with the Houston Police Department, charges are pending against a suspect arrested in a fatal traffic accident.

As a result of the accident, a pregnant woman lost her baby Thursday night after the vehicle she was riding in crashed during a police chase in Pasadena. “The victim, a 6 to 8-month-old unborn child, was pronounced dead at Ben Taub General Hospital,” according to officials with HPD.

Pasadena police were called out to a Valero gas station on Highway 225 at Pasadena Blvd. around 11:30 p.m. after hearing reports of a woman exhibiting bizarre behavior. That woman was in an SUV with another woman and a man.

When police arrived to investigate, they found the man pumping gas at the time. He quickly got back into the car, jumping behind the wheel and sped out of the parking lot.

Police then followed the vehicle and attempted to pull it over, but the driver refused to stop. A chase ensued westbound on Highway 225. Police then followed the vehicle onto Lawndale and then to Central, where the driver lost control of the vehicle and crashed.

Officials identified the driver as Kenneth Ray Humphrey. HPD Vehicular Crimes authorities provided additional details: “Suspect Humphrey fled in his black Ford Escape from Pasadena police officers into the Houston city limits. Humphrey failed to control his speed and lost control of his vehicle in the 9200 block of Lawndale. The vehicle rolled over, ejecting Humphrey. He was then taken to the hospital. Two female passengers in the Escape, one of whom was pregnant, were transported to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries. The pregnant female, 34, lost her unborn child. The other female, identified as Nelia Yarzagaray Riley (w/f, DOB: 1-1-83), faces a charge of possession of a controlled substance.”  Humphrey is facing a charge of felony evading causing death, in regards to the accident.

According to HPD, an investigation is ongoing.
