OKLAHOMA CITY – Authorities are releasing body camera footage from the end of a deadly chase. Earlier this month, two Oklahoma City police officers attempted to make a traffic stop at S.W. 40th and Villa. The vehicle slowed down like it was going to stop, but then quickly took off, leading officers on a chase. When the vehicle reached the intersection near S.W. 44th St., the driver ran a stop sign and crashed into an SUV. “He’s probably doing 80 miles per hour. Oh, wreck! He just crashed out. Start fire and EMSA, start them fast, please,” an officer is heard telling dispatchers on the body camera footage. The family inside that SUV suffered a devastating loss. Family members tell News 4 that Tonya Horn, her husband Eric and their 8-year-old daughter Rylee Ewald were on their way home from the vet when the crash occurred. “They were supposed to pick the dog up at noon… but Rylee really wanted to be there for it since it is her puppy. They waited until she got out of school or got home to pick her up,” said Kimberly Grout, Eric’s cousin.
Sadly, Rylee Ewald and Tonya Horn were pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. Eric was severely injured and is still in the hospital. The two people inside the truck, Andrew Munoz and Deanna Alvarez, face a long list of charges including second-degree murder. Investigators say the truck they were driving was stolen, and they found drugs and firearms inside the vehicle.
