GREEN COVE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a Florida man who stabbed his girlfriend to death in front of her teenage daughter has died in a car crash after a high-speed getaway.

Multiple news outlets report Clay County emergency dispatchers got a call about a stabbing Wednesday night in Green Cove Springs. The Clay County Sheriff’s Office says a woman was stabbed to death at an apartment complex and the woman’s 14-year-old daughter witnessed much of the crime.

Deputies say the 39-year-old suspect fled in his girlfriend’s car. When an officer pursued him, the man sped away and crashed. He was ejected into a home’s front yard and later died.

The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the accident.

Deputies did not say what the argument leading up to the stabbing was about.
