Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - NATION + WORLD -

Au­thor­i­ties say a po­lice chase led to a fiery crash that killed three peo­ple and in­jured three oth­ers near Pitts­burgh.

The crash happened Thurs­day af­ter­noon in North Ver­sailles, Pa.

Al­legheny County spokes­woman Amie Downs said the chase be­gan shortly af­ter a traf­fic stop in East McKeesport.

It was not im­me­di­ately clear why the driver was pulled over.

Downs said the car took off, and East McKeesport po­lice pur­sued it into North Ver­sailles. The driver hit two other cars be­fore crash­ing.

One im­age posted on Twit­ter shows a car en­gulfed in flames at an in­ter­sec­tion.

Later pic­tures show the shell of a com­pletely burned car.

Spokes­men for the North Ver­sailles and East McKeesport po­lice de­part­ments could not im­me­di­ately be reached for com­ment.
