ODESSA - A pursuit in Odessa turned deadly last night after the suspect crashed his motorcycle into another vehicle. It happened Friday night just after 11:00 in the 4400 block of University.

That's near the Red Lobster restaurant off JBS parkway. DPS officials say 28-year-old Marcus Hernandez, of Andrews, led Ector County Sheriff Deputies on a chase through town.

Hernandez was heading east on University when he lost control of his motorcycle and slammed into a freight trailer. Hernandez died at the scene.

The driver of the truck was not injured.
