Six people, including a family of four, died in a horrific crash Sunday night when a speeding SUV being chased by Texas police ran a stop sign outside Houston.

The family lived less than a block from the crash scene in League City. The 23-year-old SUV driver, who had an outstanding warrant for a felony DWI, and his cousin were also killed.

Police said it was the worst wreck they had ever seen.

The pursuit began about 8:20 p.m. when a Dickinson police officer tried to stop a Dodge Durango that was swerving and driving without its headlights on. The SUV sped off, running a stop sign and striking a vehicle. It was not clear whether anyone was hurt in that crash.

The SUV then raced on at more than 100 mph - "so fast my guy couldn't keep up," Dickinson police Capt. Jay Jaekel told The Daily News of Galveston County.

The Durango then ran another stop sign about a mile away, slamming into the family's Honda Accord. The SUV then plowed into a utility pole, knocking out power to the area.

Members of the family were identified as Rafael Guerrero, 41; his wife, Alejandra Guerrero, 38; her brother, Gilberto Ortega Jr., 25; and the Guerreros' 15-year-old son, whose name was not released.

KHOU-TV said the family was returning home after doing laundry.

The Durango driver was identified as Juan Garcia Ahuezoteco and his passenger as Alejandro Molina, both of League City.
