A motorist being chased by police crashed his pickup truck on a St. Paul overpass near downtown early Thursday and then fell about 50 feet to his death, the Star Tribune reports.
According to the Star Tribune, St. Paul police identified him as Keith A. Johnson, 38, of Apple Valley. Johnson died of multiple injuries from the fall.
The chase began in Maplewood shortly after midnight and ended in a crash on the Highway 52 bridge just south of downtown, WCCO reports. Police still don't know if he was ejected from the car or if he jumped from the bridge.
The Star Tribune reports Maplewood Deputy Police Chief Dave Kvam said the pursuit began when Johnson did not signal a turn.
