GARLAND (CBSDFW.COM) - One suspect died and another suspect was critically injured following a police chase in Garland early Thursday morning. The incident started just before 1:30 a.m. near the intersection of Interstate-635 and Northwest Highway, as a police officer attempted to make a traffic stop.

According to Joe Harn with the Garland Police Department, two men in a black 2007 Ford Crown Victoria refused to pull over for the officer, opting instead to speed away, westbound toward Dallas. The driver lost control of the vehicle at a curve in the road. The car hit a curb, left the roadway and rolled over several times along a grassy area.

Two men were thrown from the vehicle during the crash. One of the suspects — identified as 28-year-old Daniel Ray Melrose of Dallas — died from his injuries at Baylor Medical Center at Dallas. The other suspect — who has not yet identified by authorities — was transported to Parkland Hospital with life threatening injuries.
