ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) -- Police in Rochester say a reckless driver who was fleeing law enforcement caused a crash that killed a toddler and a 35-year-old woman.
The Democrat and Chronicle reports ( http://on.rocne.ws/192LOhw ) that the crash happened at 10 p.m. Friday.
Police say a Toyota Camry careening on the wrong side of the road in bad weather conditions hit a Saturn.
A 2 1/2-year-old boy in the Saturn and a 35-year-old passenger in the Camry were killed. The child's mother and the driver of the Camry were injured.
The pair in the Camry were being sought by Greece police in connection with a theft at a Walmart.
But the Greece police said in a statement that the patrol officer who was following them had halted his pursuit because of road conditions.
