HPD Vehicular Crimes Division Sergeant M. Warhol and Officer A. Mares reported:
The victim, operating a green Harley Davidson motorcycle, and suspect Tran, driving a gray Honda Accord, were involved in an earlier crash in which the victim left the scene and failed to stop and give information. While Tran was waiting for police officers to arrive to take a report, she saw the victim on the motorcycle and the two had a conversation. The victim then left the scene a second time.
Tran then got into her vehicle and began to chase after the motorcycle behind the business at the above address. When the motorcyclist lost control going around a corner of the business, Tran failed to control the speed of her vehicle and struck the motorcycle. Paramedics transported the motorcyclist to Memorial Hermann Hospital where she was pronounced deceased.
Tran was taken into custody and subsequently charged in the incident.
