CHILLICOTHE, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say a driver fleeing a traffic stop in Ohio has been killed after his car rolled over and slid down an embankment.

Chillicothe police say the chase began at around 1:30 a.m. Friday after an officer stopped a Pontiac Grand Am for an expired registration. Investigators say when the car stopped, a woman jumped out, and the car took off.

The car traveled about 2 miles before the driver lost control of the vehicle, went into the median and flipped over into an embankment. The dead man hasn’t been identified.

One officer suffered minor injuries in the pursuit when his cruiser slid into a guardrail.

Investigators haven’t found the woman who got out of the car.
