A 26-year-old woman died after she crashed a car into a concrete wall following a brief pursuit by the State Patrol early Sunday on Interstate 94 in St. Paul.
The patrol identified the woman as Ahayna Elizabeth Sanders.
Two passengers were taken to Regions Hospital: a 41-year-old man with life-threatening injuries and another 26-year-old woman with injuries that were not life-threatening.
A trooper saw a Dodge Avenger speeding eastbound on I-94 at Hamline Avenue about 2 a.m., according to a State Patrol report. The car did not stop when the trooper activated his lights and sirens to try to make a traffic stop.
The trooper stopped pursuing the vehicle when it exited at Marion Street, where the Dodge sped through an intersection and hit a concrete wall, according to the report.
