Deputies said the man ran a red light, and by the time they caught up with him on the northbound Beltway 8 feeder road near Highway 90, the driver had lost control.

Houston Transtar cameras recorded the moment the Explorer rolled five times. Investigators said the driver was ejected from the vehicle and died.

We do not know the driver's name, but he is described as a Hispanic man in his 30s.
