Early Thursday collision after police chase from Irving

DALLAS, TX, (February 01, 2024) – The chase of a stolen vehicle early Thursday morning in Irving ended in tragedy when the car crashed off of an overpass near downtown Dallas.

Police LightsSabria Lacey and DeAvion Aubert were identified as two of the four people who died early Thursday after a chase by Irving police officers ended in a fiery crash near downtown Dallas.

According to the Irving Police Department, a stolen vehicle was spotted by officers at around 2 a.m. in the 3200 block of North Belt Line Road. The officers initiated a pursuit after the driver of the stolen vehicle refused to pull over.

The chase lasted several miles into Dallas when the driver of the suspect vehicle apparently lost control. The vehicle left an overpass along southbound Interstate 35 and crashed onto the eastbound lanes of Woodall Rodgers Freeway below where it burst into flames.

The stolen vehicle was occupied by four individuals. All of them perished in the crash. Authorities later identified two of the victims as Sabria Lacey and DeAvion Aubert.

A spokesman for the Irving Police Department said that officers are allowed to chase stolen vehicles.

The accident remains under investigation.


“It is imperative to come to a determination of the exact cause of these types of accidents. An attorney has the resources to review applicable insurance coverage, hire expert witnesses, run background checks, and locate witnesses. We carefully guide the family of the victim through the process,” said Candice Bond, a managing partner with Bond Legal.

She noted that, in cases such as this, an independent investigation is crucial to preserve evidence.

“In addition to a police report, an attorney will carefully review what may have contributed to the crash,” said Bond. “A lawyer has the resources to hire expert witnesses, conduct drivers’ background checks, locate witnesses to the crash, and review applicable insurance coverage. Serving as an advocate, an attorney can help guide an injury victim through what can be a complicated process.”


Pending the results of any investigations, the families of Sabria Lacey and DeAvion Aubert may pursue a wrongful death claim. Survivors of wrongful death victims may seek damages for loss of companionship, pain and suffering, and emotional distress following a catastrophic accident such as this.

Stefano Formica, of counsel at Bond Legal, said, “Grieving families of victims are sometimes overwhelmed by the legal processes that are in place to protect their rights. An attorney can be a valuable and compassionate resource to help guide a family during this difficult time and ensure that those left behind receive the restitution they are entitled to.”
