A man was killed after fleeing from police in southwest Houston overnight.

Police say the man ran a red light and tried to pull him over but he took off. Three different cruisers went after the suspect until he lost control on Bissonnet near West Acre Place. He was ejected from his car and his vehicle ended up rolling on top of him and killing him.

No word on why he started running from authorities in the first place.
