HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — A 21-year-old man charged with murder after allegedly leading police in a high-speed chase that ended in a fatal accident appeared before a judge Sunday morning.

West’s bail was set at $400,000 and court documents show he was already out on bail for unlawfully carrying a gun load when the prosecution unfolded Friday night.

A large crowd took over a busy parking lot on Kempwood Drive in northwest Houston and performed illegal stunts.

Investigators said West participated in the street takeover and fled when officers showed up.

West then allegedly took off too quickly, ran a red light and hit five different cars, killing an innocent driver.

ABC13 spoke to one of the five victims, who said he felt lucky and grateful to be alive.

The Houston Police Department and the Harris County Sheriff’s Office say they have two teams working to stop these street takeovers. According to police, an undercover officer was at the scene on Friday evening.

The passenger who was in the car with the deceased is in hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Investigators said they plan to make further arrests in the case.

In addition to the murder charge, West is facing a charge of aggravated assault with grievous bodily harm.
