PETERSBURG, Va. (AP) - Petersburg authorities say they’re conducting a death investigation after the body of a person believed to be involved in a car crash was found a day after the wreck happened.

News outlets report Petersburg police say the incident began Tuesday when officers tried to conduct a traffic stop for an unidentified female believed to be driving drunk.

Police say she didn’t stop, so officers started pursuing her. The chase ended when the driver wrecked her car, flipping it several times. She was arrested and taken to the hospital.

The next day, police say they received a call from someone saying they believed their family member had also been in the vehicle.

Authorities returned to the crash scene where they found a man’s body in a wooded area some distance away.
