LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Lexington police say a bank robbery suspect was killed when he lost control of his car on Interstate 75 and crashed into a rock wall.

According to WKYT-TV (http://bit.ly/1dlczR6), the man identified as 30-year-old Lonnie Ray Hatfield of Richmond reportedly walked into a bank on around 10 a.m. Saturday and demanded cash.

A witness who saw him leave the bank and get into a car gave police a description of the vehicle.

While patrolling I-75, police noticed a car that matched the description and attempted a traffic stop near mile marker 107.

Officials say the suspect refused to stop and continued south along I-75. He exited the interstate onto a ramp where he apparently lost control of his car and struck the wall. Hatfield was pronounced dead at the scene.
