CHICAGO (AP) - A man has been charged in connection with a robbery that led to a high-speed chase and a crash that left two dead and four Chicago police officers injured.

Michael Cokes of Alsip is charged with robbery and is being held in the Will County Jail in lieu of $500,000 bond. It wasn’t immediately known if Cokes has an attorney.

The manager of a Tinley Park fast-food restaurant was robbed Friday in the parking lot as she was heading for a bank. The chase began when Illinois State Police spotted the getaway vehicle on Interstate 57. Several police agencies joined the chase. The suspect car collided with a police vehicle after exiting the expressway.

Two men, 22-year-old Ronald Arrington of Chicago, and 26-year-old Jimmy Malone, whose address was unknown, were killed.
