A suspect fleeing United States Marshals eluding police caused a multi-vehicle crash on Bearfork Road and Dial in Prichard with a multiple vehicle crash.

One person is now confirmed dead.

The Mobile County Sheriff's Office released the following statement:

"On October 20, 2017, at approximately 8 a.m., the United States Marshals Service Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force, with the assistance of the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office, Mobile Police Department and ALEA, initiated surveillance on Larry Lett-Hall, 23, who was wanted for seven felony warrants from Prichard Police Department and Mobile Police Department to include kidnapping, assault, and the rape and sodomy of two children.

At approximately 8:30 a.m., Marshals observed Lett-Hall get into a vehicle with two unidentified individuals. Marshals followed the vehicle, and several marked and unmarked vehicles with lights activated attempted to stop the vehicle.

Lett-Hall abruptly turned around in an effort to elude Marshals and took off at a high rate of speed.

As they were turning around, Marshals lost sight of the vehicle. Based on this, no vehicle pursuit was initiated. Marshals proceeded in the last known direction of the vehicle, and came across an intersection with three overturned vehicles at Bearfork Road and Dial Road in Prichard, Alabama.

ALEA is actively investigating the collision at the four-way intersection. The crash resulted in the injury of two uninvolved civilians, and the death of the passenger in Lett-Hall’s vehicle. The female passenger in Lett-Hall’s vehicle is currently being treated for injuries as well.

Mobile County Sheriff’s deputies, assisting at the scene, saw that Lett-Hall’s vehicle was on fire. Deputies quickly pulled the occupants from the vehicle, and extinguished the fire.

Lett-Hall is being treated for injuries he sustained from the collision."
