ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - A police chase in Anaheim has ended with a head-on crash that killed two people.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department says deputies went to Villa Park Thursday afternoon after getting a call about suspicious people knocking on doors.

When police arrived, three people took off in a Ford Focus.

During the chase, a pillowcase was thrown out of the car window. Authorities say it was later found to contain jewelry and a laptop apparently stolen in a burglary.

A few minutes after the chase began, the car crossed into oncoming traffic in Anaheim and hit an SUV.



The Focus driver and another man in the car were died.

A woman passenger and the SUV driver were injured but are expected to survive.
