GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - Greenville police say a man has died after stealing a marked patrol car and crashing it into a brick wall.

Officer Jonathan Bragg tells local media outlets that an officer was responding to a crash at around 8 p.m. Thursday when someone involved in the wreck jumped into his police cruiser and took off.

The car was spotted a short time later, and police started pursuing it. Officers say the driver lost control of the car and crashed into a brick wall.

Greenville County Coroner Parks Evans says the driver died on the scene. His name has not been released, and an autopsy was scheduled for Friday.
