CENTER, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say two women have died in central Indiana after a pickup fleeing law enforcement struck the car they were riding in.

The Howard County Sheriff’s Office says the crash happened Monday night in the unincorporated community of Center. WRTV and WTHR-TV report authorities tried to pull over the pickup for speeding on U.S. 31, and a chase ensued before the pickup went through a stop sign and hit a Toyota Prius.

The Kokomo Tribune reports the two men in the pickup were not injured.
