Stolen Car Crash Kills Woman, Injures Children
A car speeding away from Minneapolis police officers Sunday morning crashed into another car, killing a woman and injuring two young children, according to the Star Tribune.
The two young children were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center. The names of the victims were not released.
According to a police department news release, officers first attempted to stop the car after a traffic violation. The driver refused to stop and sped away.
During the chase, dispatchers told officers the car was stolen and the patrol sergeant called off the chase because of the risk of public safety.
As the car sped away, police said they saw a cloud of debris rise in the air.
The suspect fled the scene but was later arrested in a nearby Kmart, according to the Pioneer Press.
