Summary
Officers tried to stop Ray Reyes Soto, 19, for an expired registration, but he refused to pull over allegedly because he had active warrants for his arrest. The chase, which hit speeds of 20-30 mph, ended in the parking lot of an H-E-B. Soto allegedly kept pulling into parking lots as though he was going to stop. He would hit his brakes and then the officer would start to get out and then he'd drive off. Soto lost control of his vehicle and hit a concrete basin for a telephone pole with his girlfriend in the passenger seat, and his girlfriend's grandmother, Yolanda Mesa, in the backseat, killing Mesa.
