INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Police say two people are dead in Indianapolis after a motorist fleeing police crashed a car into a pole.

In a Friday news release, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police says that just before 3 a.m. a woman called 911 and said she had been threatened with a knife by her daughter’s boyfriend. Police say he was allegedly sitting inside a car nearby and had been drinking.

When an officer arrived, the car sped way. The officer pursued the vehicle, which crashed and caught fire.

Emergency crews later found two bodies in the car.

Investigators haven’t identified the victims.
