MORRIS COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - The driver of a vehicle that was killed during an early morning police chase has been identified.

44-year-old Anthony Aundra Coleman of Longview had just been released from Upshur County Jail yesterday.

Coleman was driving through Lone Star at around 3:00 this morning, when he made a traffic violation and was about to be pulled over by a Lone Star police officer.

Authorities say, Coleman had stolen the vehicle he was in just hours after being released from jail, so he took off, traveling at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour trying to outrun the officers.

The chase continued until they reached downtown Daingerfield, where Coleman lost control of his vehicle and struck a power pole.

Mr. Coleman had a long history of arrests.
