GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - A driver has died after being pursued by police in Green Bay.

Officers were called to investigate a person trying to break into some vehicles in a west side neighborhood Sunday shortly before 10 p.m. Authorities say the person appeared to be intoxicated.

A short time later, officers tried to stop a vehicle that was operating erratically in the area. WLUK-TV (https://bit.ly/2oPs0dB ) says the driver started to pull over, but then took off and eventually jumped a curb and struck a tree. The vehicle split apart. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

Appleton police are investigating because the case is classified as an “officer-involved death.” The State Patrol is also investigating.
