Police say at least 7 people were injured following a police pursuit that ended in a wreck in north Houston

Seven people were injured after a police pursuit ended in an accident in north Houston Saturday.

It ended on Trickey and Hugh. Moments before the crash, officers were in pursuit of that suspect.

"As the officers attempted to catch up to him, he started to flee," said Sgt. Robert Musick with the Houston Police Department. "The vehicle was coming up to the stop sign, trying to make a left turn. The suspect was trying to go around the vehicle and struck it when it made the left turn in front of it."

The suspect's Chevy sedan went into a ditch along with the Toyota 4-Runner.

Six people who were in that SUV were seen laid out on the ground as paramedics treated them. They were transported to area hospitals. At least one child was among the injured.

Police say they were not wearing seat belts. The family was headed to church just yards away from that intersection.

In fact, we saw church members helping those victims on the street after the crash. All of those injured had non-life threatening injuries.

Church members were seen carrying food from inside that SUV to the church. Police say that suspect, who was also injured, had warrants for his arrests and drugs in his car.

The suspect will face a felony charge of evading arrest. Drug charges are also pending.
