OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Police in Oklahoma City say that a police pursuit has ended in the deaths of two people, including a child.
Authorities say the victims died Friday when their vehicle was struck by a stolen pickup truck which was being pursued by police on the city’s southwest side.
Officers say the pursuit began when the driver of the pickup refused to pull over for a traffic stop. It ended when the truck’s driver ran a red light and crashed into the victims’ vehicle.
A woman and child in the vehicle were pronounced dead at the scene. They haven’t been identified at this time. Authorities say a third person in that vehicle, as well as the driver and a passenger in the pickup, were hospitalized following the collision.
Police say they found drugs and guns in the pickup.
