Accident Kills 9 Year Old In Mitchell

Mitchell, SD

A tragic high-speed chase in Mitchell, South Dakota ended the life of a young child this afternoon.

It happened just before 3 p.m. when an officer noticed a vehicle speeding near 10th and Main street.

The driver refused to pull over and picked up speed, traveling 14 blocks in just one minute.

It came to a stop when the vehicle crashed into an SUV at the intersection of 1st Avenue and Duff Street.

A nine year old passenger inside the SUV didn't survive the crash.    

The driver tried to flee the scene, but was arrested shortly after.

Authorities believe alcohol played a factor.
