EPHRATA, WA – A woman is dead and two men are in custody following a police chase in eastern Washington, KOMO News reports.
The Grant County Sheriff’s Office says the chase began at about 2:30 a.m. yesterday morning, when an Ephrata police officer responded to reports of a suspicious person in the Swanson Addition neighborhood. That officer gave pursuit after a suspect jump in a car and then fled town at a high rate of speed.
The chase continued south on Dodson Road, where the suspect lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a residential yard. A man got out of the vehicle and ran away on foot, while a woman was found dead in the vehicle. It is not clear which of the two had been driving.
