TAMA, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa State Patrol says two men have died in a crash during a police pursuit in Tama.

A patrol accident report say officers attempted to stop 31-year-old Troy C. Marvin, of Cedar Rapids, after he committed a traffic violation but instead of stopping he fled. Marvin drove his pickup through a Tama street intersection colliding with a car driven by 25-year-old Ian L. Halvorson, of Tama.

The Iowa State Patrol says both vehicles left the roadway, struck a utility pole and rolled several times. Both men were pronounced dead at the scene.

The Courier in Waterloo reports (https://bit.ly/2iTRAvK ) the crash was shortly before midnight Friday.
