The pursuit lasted only a few minutes before the suspect crashed into another car about three miles from where it began, St. Louis County police spokeswoman Tracy Panus said.

The driver of the second car was killed and a passenger in that car was critically injured. A passenger in the suspect’s vehicle also was critically injured.


The suspect was not injured and was arrested at the scene, Panus said.
