The accident occurred at Building 8800 of Lai Street at around 11:40 p.m.
According to police, officers who were heading west on Ley Road saw a pickup truck heading east at high speed and driving recklessly.
HPD says officers attempted to make a reverse turn to stop the traffic, but the car was traveling at such high speed that they were unable to activate their equipment and park behind it.
As the officers approached the intersection of Ley and Mesa Road, they saw dust and debris. Police say the truck hit something and stopped in a ditch.
Police say the man was the only person in the car.
