That car flipped over and one person was thrown from the vehicle. A person from the second car was airlifted to the hospital.

Baylark was pronounced dead at a Bridgeton hospital. The pedestrian sustained moderate injuries and was taken to a Creve Coeur hospital.

Police have identified the elderly woman who died after being hit by another driver who was fleeing police.

The incident began when officers saw two suspects driving a stolen vehicle in South St. Louis near Grand and Osage. During the traffic stop, the suspect--an 18 year-old man--threw his car into reverse and almost hit the police officer. He then sped off, but hit a car with three passengers, including 87-year-old Virginia Bedrosian. Bedrosian was taken to the hospital where she died later Tuesday night.

The suspect was caught after a short foot chase and his passenger was taken into custody as well.
