Woman, 22, dies in crash during brief chase

 

A 22-year-old woman died and a 25-year-old woman was injured in a solo-vehicle crash during a brief police chase in East Palo Alto late Friday night, police said.

Officers said they saw a vehicle driving recklessly at Pulgas Avenue and Camellia Drive at around 10:30 p.m.

Police said the officers attempted to stop the vehicle but the car would not yield and continued to speed in what appeared to be an attempt to evade the police.

The driver, a 25-year-old woman, was ejected from the vehicle and was hospitalized with serious, non-life-threatening injuries.

The passenger, a 22-year-old woman from East Palo Alto, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call or text message police at (650) 409-6792 or email to epa@tipnow.org.
