WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A man has been charged with crashing into and killing a 91-year-old driver while fleeing from police in a stolen car.

Eighteen-year-old Alex Davis was charged Thursday with first-degree murder in the crash that killed James Dexter on Monday.

Davis also is charged in the alternative with second-degree murder, and with fleeing or attempting to elude an officer, leaving the scene of an accident, burglary, theft, attempted aggravated robbery and driving with a suspended or canceled license. The Wichita Eagle (https://bit.ly/2eCM6TD ) reports that he is jailed on $250,000 bond.

Wichita Police Chief Gordon Ramsay has said the pursuit started after an officer saw Davis run a stop sign and lasted just 14 seconds before the fatal crash.

His attorney didn’t immediately return a phone message from The Associated Press.
