ST. JOHN, Ind. (AP) — One motorist died and two others, including a police officer, were hurt after a pursuit ended in a multi-vehicle crash in northwest Indiana.

Police say the collision occurred about 3:30 a.m. on U.S. 41 in the town of St. John, about 30 miles southeast of Chicago.

The pursuit began when a Dyer, Indiana, officer tried to stop a vehicle with no license plate traveling on U.S. 30. The pursued vehicle then turned on U.S. 41 and entered St. John, where it rear-ended one car, and then struck a Lake County Sheriff’s Office squad car.

The crash killed the motorist being pursued and injured the two others.
