Driver flashed gun at teens before deadly crash in Texas, deputies say

HOUSTON, Texas -- A driver wanted for chasing three teenagers in an SUV before a deadly crash apparently flashed a semi-automatic weapon, deputies said late Tuesday.

Harris County Sheriff's Office said a woman was killed when a 14-year-old driving a GMC Acadia ran a red light and smashed into her Ford F-150 in north Houston.

Before the crash, deputies said the three teens were throwing eggs at vehicles. A driver, whose car was damaged by the eggs, decided to chase the teens.

Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said the search is on for the driver of a late-model 1970s Lincoln Continental, either gold or yellow in color with a white top.

The suspect is described as being a Hispanic male in his late 20s with a tattoo on his left forearm and elbow.
