GORDON, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska State Patrol says a person has died after a car fled a traffic stop and later collided with a trooper’s cruiser in northwestern Nebraska.

The patrol says in a press release Tuesday that the crash happened Monday night on state Highway 27 north of Gordon. The patrol says a trooper saw a car run a stop sign and tried to pull it over, but it fled. A short time later, the car and cruiser collided, sending the car into a ditch.

The patrol says the car’s driver, 32-year-old Antoine Ladeaux, of Pine Ridge, South Dakota, was thrown from the car and died. Three passengers in the car were treated and released from a local hospital.

State law requires a grand jury investigation anytime someone dies while fleeing police.
