WACO (May 28, 2014) Police Wednesday identified a shooting victim whom officers found in a car that was involved in a three-vehicle crash late Sunday night at North 17th Street and Waco Drive as Daniel Earl Whittley, 54.

Whittley was driving south on North 17th Street at around 10:30 p.m. Sunday when his Mitsubishi Galant ran into a Chevrolet HHR, Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said.

The HHR overturned and rolled twice before coming to rest, but none of the people in it was injured, Swanton said.

A third car hit the HHR after the initial accident, Swanton said.

Everyone in that vehicle fled, he said.

Whittley remained at Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center Wednesday, but is expected to survive, Swanton said.
