At least four people have been killed after a vehicle that was evading a sheriff’s deputy crashed into another vehicle on a highway in Loxley, Alabama, according to the Associated Press.
A deputy was attempting to stop the vehicle for a traffic violation around 1:30 p.m. Monday afternoon when the car “exited Interstate 10 multiple times, reversing directions, before making a U-turn on the highway and going the wrong way in the westbound lanes. The deputy lost sight of the car as it went around a curve, only to later find it had crashed,” according to the Baldwin County Sheriff.
The three people in the fleeing vehicle died after the car crashed, rolled over and burned. A passenger in the SUV that the car crashed into also died.
The case is being investigated as a traffic homicide.
