At 8:15 p.m. Sunday night Deputy Hardin, who was just recently assigned to patrol and his Field Training Officer, Deputy Cross were in the area of FM 2090 and Crockett Martin working traffic when a silver Honda rad through the intersection without stopping. As soon as Deputy Hardin activated his lights the vehicle sped up going north on FM 1485 at speeds close to 80mph. At one point he spun out but recovered before the deputy’s could get him.
The chase continued to SH105 where it went west into Conroe. At times the driver was able to gain some distance on the deputies as many cars just ignored the emergency lights and siren.
Conroe units were set with spikes near Sixth and Davis when the driver slammed into the light pole at the corner of tenth and Davis.
The driver identified as Nathan Cole Holland fled the scene on foot leaving his pregnant girlfriend in the front seat of the crushed car.
Conroe Police surrounded the area and a dog was called in from Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office but they were unable to locate him.
The girlfriend was transported to Conroe Regional Hospital in stable condition.
Conroe Police spent several hours directing traffic as Entergy assembled crews to replace the pole and repair a primary line on a main pole.
Holland was already wanted for evading and has multiple other charges over the past few years.
