The Fort Hood soldier who died after a high-speed chase with police was identified as 22-year-old Spc. Glenn Allen Moore.

Fort Hood said Moore, of Seminole, Fla., died from injuries suffered from a single-vehicle accident Jan. 22.

The Texas Department of Public Safety confirmed Moore was the man killed in a wreck after a chase with police reached speeds of 130 miles an hour.

Copperas Cove police started to pursue a 2013 Hyundai Genesis near the Lampasas County line after clocking the vehicle traveling at more than 90 mph.

The chase continued along U.S. Highway 190 and Clear Creek Road in Killeen to State Highway 195, heading south.

The driver, later identified as Moore, turned onto Briggs Road, and the chase ended when Moore missed a curve and his vehicle hit a tree.

The crash was reported about midnight.

Speaking Monday, Harpin Myers, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety, said Moore had no warrants or criminal history, and no drugs were found in the car.

A preliminary autopsy report listed Moore’s cause of death as multiple blunt-force trauma. A toxicology report is pending, Myers said.

According to information from Fort Hood, Moore entered the military in October 2010 as a geospatial intelligence imagery analyst.

He was assigned to Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 306th Military Intelligence Battalion, 89th Military Police Brigade, since October.

Moore was deployed to Afghanistan from May 2012 to April 2013.

His awards and decorations included the Air Medal, Army Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Afghanistan Campaign Medal with campaign star, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Army Service Ribbon, Overseas Service Ribbon, NATO Medal and the Army Aviator Badge.
