KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Police have identified a driver killed in a crash while fleeing from a police stop in a northeastern part of the city as a local teenager.
Daniel Ruiz-Serafin, 17, of Kansas City, died in the Monday crash, police said in a news release.
Investigators say the incident began late Monday afternoon when officers tried to stop a car suspected in an assault, and the driver fled. As officers chased the car, it went out of control, hit a concrete wall, a pole and a parked vehicle before coming to a stop, police said.
Police said the driver — later identified as Ruiz-Serafin — died at the scene.
