According to the accident report, Chickasaw Lighthorse police were chasing a stolen 2007 Cadillac Escalade on the highway when the driver, 22 year-old Pedro A. Garciga, turned off the vehicle’s headlights and collided head-on with the vehicle driven by Bullard. Airbags were deployed in both vehicles. Seatbelts were in use by the driver and one passenger in the Suburban. It is unknown if Garciga was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the accident.
