Associated Press - April 10, 2014 6:18 am

The Kansas Highway Patrol says a young girl died when the van her mother was driving was hit by a car fleeing from police.

Authorities say Kansas City, Kan., police began chasing the car after it didn’t stop for a routine traffic stop Wednesday night. The driver eventually ran a red light and hit a van, killing the girl and injuring her mother and two other children.

The driver tried to flee but was arrested.

The victim was a 7-year-old girl. The mother, a 7-year-old boy and a 9-year-old boy were seriously injured.

The highway patrol is investigating.
