LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - One person was killed and five others were injured after a man led police on a high speed chase in Lubbock.

The suspect, 33-year-old Jonathan Lavato, fled police Thursday after officers with the Lubbock Police Department narcotics unit had tried to arrest him at a motel.

Authorities say Lavato was fleeing in his car when he ran a red light, colliding with another vehicle and causing a chain reaction crash with several other vehicles.

Police say 54-year-old Ngoc Dung Tran was killed.

Lavato and a passenger in his car, along with three others were injured. None of the injuries appeared to be life threatening.
