BEDFORD (CBSDFW.COM) – A newlywed husband was killed and his pregnant wife seriously injured Thursday when their car was broadsided by a man who police say was driving a stolen Audi and trying to escape them.
Police have charged 29-year old Jason Bernard Miller with murder after he attempted to flee Bedford Police Thursday afternoon and ended up hitting a car stopped at the intersection of Don Dodson road at Murphy Rd.
According to police the incident started when the suspect, driving a black Audi at high speed, blew past a Bedford police officer going the other way.
When police caught up to Miller, they discovered that he had t-boned another vehicle – seriously injuring the occupants, and was attempting to climb through the sunroof of the stolen wrecked Audi.
Reports state officers detained Miller and summoned additional Bedford Police and Fire Units to the scene.
Authorities have now identified the Bedford couple as 25-year old Colby Bozo and his wife Kristen.
Mr. Bozo was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. Kristen was airlifted to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth where she remains in critical condition.
Colby Bozo was an Army veteran, with tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. At the family’s home in Hurst Friday, Mike Bozo said his son started suffering seizures when he came home, but recently they were starting to disappear.
“He was very excited,” Bozo said. “The lines were leaving his face from the stress of that, and what he did. There was a real joy in his heart that started developing the last three months.”
Colby was the youngest of Mike Bozo’s three sons. The baby boy delivered after the accident Thursday was named Brody.
“It would be my first grandson. He is carrying the name. He’s it. The last Bozo.”
The I-Team found the man arrested after the crash and charged with murder, Jason Miller, was released from prison in late 2013 after being convicted on a manslaughter charge. Court records show he shot and killed a man in Dallas in 2005.
The suspect is being held at the Bedford Law Enforcement Center on a $1 Million bond for the murder charge and faces additional charges for evading arrest, unauthorized use of a vehicle and possession of a controlled substance.
According to the Dallas Police, the Audi Miller was driving was reported stolen on June 17.
