A 29-year-old woman and her two sons were killed Sunday when a man driving a stolen vehicle slammed into their car after he was chased by a State Trooper, according to the Star Tribune.

Amanda Jean Thomas, 29, and her two songs, one 12-year-old and one three month-old, were hit by a car that was fleeing police and ran a red light in north Minneapolis. Another car was hit in the accident, according to the Pioneer Press.
