( KTRS ) Two people were killed and another critically injured Thursday afternoon in a fiery, three-vehicle, head-on crash that occurred during a police pursuit.
The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports officers pursued the car into the city from North County. Authorities had been looking for the car since Monday, when they detected a live-streamed social media video showing its occupants with handguns.
The crash occurred shortly before 3 p.m. on Riverview Boulevard. Police say the Chevy Impala being pursued was speeding the wrong way on Riverview and crashed head-on into an oncoming SUV. The Impala caught fire, which quickly spread to the other two vehicles.
Officials confirmed that two people were killed in the crash. A man in the SUV was taken to a hospital, where he was listed in critical but stable condition. An investigation is ongoing.
