WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A collision that killed three people in Wichita came after a brief police pursuit.

Wichita police say an officer noticed a man driving a Ford pickup erratically and without headlights early Friday in south Wichita. Capt. Jeff Weible says the driver refused to pull over, prompting a chase that lasted less than a minute.

Weible says less than 10 minutes later, the speeding truck collided with a Cadillac.

A 31-year-old Wichita man driving the truck was killed, along with a 69-year-old man and a 62-year-old woman from Haysville who were in the other vehicle.

Weible says the truck driver did not seem to realize he was no longer being pursued. He says the officer followed proper protocol.
