The Houma Courier reports the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office says Michael Brown was pulled dead from the wreck on Sunday.
Deputies say authorities responded that night to a report that Brown hit his girlfriend at a residence in Gray, and then left while threatening to return with a gun.
They say a deputy searching the area spotted Brown’s car and tried to pull him over, but he fled. They say Brown ignored several traffic lights and struck a curb and utility pole. Authorities say Brown’s car then flipped and he was found to have suffered fatal injuries. An investigation is ongoing.
