TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A car being pursued by authorities crashed into another vehicle at a Topeka intersection, killing a passenger in the second car.

The Kansas Highway Patrol said in a release that a trooper tried to stop a vehicle for a traffic violation at about noon Thursday, but the driver failed to stop. The trooper briefly pursued the vehicle, which struck the second car. The patrol says a passenger in the second car died, and the driver of that car was hospitalized with critical injuries.

The suspect and a baby in the back seat of the suspect’s car were taken to a hospital. A passenger in the suspect’s vehicle was uninjured.

The patrol says the victim’s name hasn’t been released, and charges are pending against the driver.
