OWASSO, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a woman was killed when the car she was in was struck by a stolen pickup truck that was leading troopers on a chase in Owasso.

The OHP told reporters that a trooper spotted the stolen truck Sunday afternoon on Interstate 44 and the driver then led several troopers on a chase and tried to run troopers off the road.

The OHP says the chase ended when the driver tried to make a turn and instead crashed into the woman’s vehicle.

Police say the woman later died at a hospital and the driver was hospitalized in good condition.

No names were immediately released.
