KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) – Police say a 62-year-old woman died when a car fleeing from police ran a stop sign and collided with her vehicle.

The accident happened Monday night in Kansas City, Kan. Police say they began pursuing the man’s vehicle after they saw him commit two traffic violations while leaving an area known for its drug activity.

The man’s car eventually ran a stop sign and hit a car driven by Graciela Olivas, of Kansas City, Kan., sending her car into a ditch. She died later at a hospital.
