A Texas man is accused of kidnapping his ex-girlfriend and was only caught because he crashed the car, police said.
According to police in Marshall, Texas, they received a report on Aug. 6 about a car crash on Victory Drive. When officers arrived at the scene of the wreck, they found 21-year-old Erick Arellano Lozada chasing a woman around a crashed car.
After Lozada was detained, the woman told the police that Lozada, her ex-boyfriend, arrived at her home unannounced and allegedly forced her into a car against her will, according to Marshall police.
As Lozada drove away with her in the passenger seat, the woman grabbed the steering wheel, which drove the car off the road and caused it to crash, police noted.
Lozada was arrested by the Marshall police at the scene of the crash and later was booked into the Harrison County Jail.
He has been charged with aggravated kidnapping, abandoning/endangering a child, criminal negligence, assault causing bodily injury/family violence and driving while intoxicated.
