Two die in fiery end of pursuit

 

goodyear, Ariz. –  Early morning hours on Monday a Goodyear Police Officer, on his way home, spotted a car running a red light in the area of N. Litchfield and W. McDowell. After observing other signs of possible impairment the officer attempted to stop the car after it got onto Interstate 10.

 

The 26 year old driver of the car refused to stop and fled east bound with his three passengers. At the Avondale Blvd. exit, the driver drove across an embankment rolling the car into a tree. After impact, the car caught fire. Officers removed the two female backseat passengers (17 and 14 years of age) but could not get to either the driver or front seat passenger (19), both of whom died at the scene.

 

It was later learned the car was reported stolen out of El Mirage PD. The female passengers were transported to area hospitals.
