TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A man has been arrested after a police pursuit that ended in a deadly three-vehicle crash in Topeka.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/1NSvhKu ) reports the crash occurred early Thursday. Police say the victim, 34-year-old Mia Holden, was a passenger in a vehicle that the fleeing vehicle struck.

Three others suffered non-life threatening injuries, including the driver of the vehicle that was being pursued. Police said the driver was in a hospital later Thursday evening but would be booked on charges including first-degree murder.

Police say the pursuit started when the driver refused to pull over. Police say officers used tire deflation devices but the driver kept going. Authorities said the chase was moving at only 18 mph at times.

The crash shut down a busy intersection for most of the morning.
