KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) – Police have ruled that a woman found dead inside a vehicle after a police chase died of injuries suffered in the head-on collision that ended the pursuit.
The Kansas City Star reports that police on Monday disclosed the cause of death of 29-year-old Chrissy Saale. Her body was found early Thursday on Interstate 70 in Kansas City, Kansas. She was a passenger. The driver, a 24-year-old man, faces several charges.
The chase began when police followed a car onto a dead end street before the driver struck a police car and drove off, crossing into Missouri before returning to Kansas.
The car eventually drove the wrong way on the interstate and collided with another car.
The other driver had minor injuries.
