UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP) – State police say a woman injured in a southeastern Pennsylvania crash that occurred as police were chasing another driver has died.
Police in Fayette County allege that a male driver swerved out of his lane shortly before noon Friday on Route 119 and nearly hit a patrol car in the passing lane. Officials said a chase began that reached speeds of 70 to 80 mph, but another trooper who joined the chase hit a second vehicle, injuring the female driver.
Police said Bendetta Miller of Uniontown was flown to Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown, West Virginia, where she died Saturday.
Police said a suspect later arrested would face charges including aggravated assault, fleeing and eluding and resisting arrest. A trooper was taken to Uniontown Hospital with a hip injury.
