2 dead after police chase in St. Louis
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Two people are dead and a third is critically injured after a head-on crash during a police pursuit in St. Louis.
The accident happened Thursday afternoon as St. Louis County police officers pursued a car into the city. County officers had been looking for the car since Monday after live-streamed social media video showed occupants with handguns.
Police say the Chevrolet Impala being pursued was speeding the wrong way on Riverview Boulevard and struck an oncoming SUV head-on, pushing the SUV into a parked pickup truck.
A man in the SUV is hospitalized in critical but stable condition. The two dead men were in the Impala. Their names have not been released.
