SummaryPolice responded to a multi-vehicle traffic accident and then started chasing the victim, which fled the scene in a Mitsubishi in pursuit. Police stopped the car with a spike strip and it veered towards a Longview Officer Kerry Higginbotham, striking him, "then turned 180 degrees and drove back towards him," Higginbotham said. The officer fired three shots, two of which struck Sifuentes, who died in the hospital.
