Officers responded to an alarm received around 3:15 a.m. Monday morning at the "S&C Convenience Store” at 1304 S. 31st St. A small black, two-door vehicle was observed fleeing from the parking lot when police arrived.

The vehicle fled from police heading west bound on Avenue M. then turned onto S. 57th St., then north on General Bruce Dr. while an officer remained in pursuit.

The suspect then made a U-turn under I-35 before merging onto I-35 Southbound.

Three year Temple Police veteran Carmen DeCruz was en route to assist the initial pursuing officer.

DeCruz was approaching the intersection of S.W. HK Dodgen Loop with emergency lights and sirens active when a black four door Volkswagen entered the intersection colliding with the officer's car.

DeCruz was transported to Scott and White Hospital and is receiving treatment for non-life threatening injuries.

Two occupants of the Volkswagen were also transported to Scott and White also with non-life threatening injuries.

The pursuit was ended by officers. The suspect's vehicle was last seen exiting IH 35 at 6th St. in Belton.

The Temple Police Dept. is investigating the burglary at the business. Temple Police Department's Traffic Unit is investigating the collision.

Anyone with any information about this incident can contact the Temple Police Department at (254) 298-5500.
