YORK, Pa. (AP) - The Pennsylvania State Police are investigating the fatal police pursuit of a hit-and-run suspect who allegedly fled when police tried to stop him in a central Pennsylvania city.

State police say the 51-year-old man was spotted driving a pickup wanted in a hit-and-run Thursday night in York. Police spotted and stopped the vehicle shortly after midnight, but investigators say the driver sped away as the York officers got out of their car.

Those police gave chase, and the truck crashed, ejecting the driver from the vehicle.

The York County coroner identified the dead man as Carl Snellings. He was from York.

An autopsy will be performed Saturday.

State police are investigating the crash because York police were involved in the chase.
