2 dead in crash in Oakland

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) The California Highway Patrol says two people died when a car they attempted to pull over earlier crashed into a Sport Utility Vehicle in Oakland.

The crash occured early Thursday morning after the CHP spotted the BMW speeding on Interstate 580. CHP Officer Rob Tuazon tells KGO-TV the driver refused to pull over and slammed into a Chevy Suburban after exiting on MacArthur Boulevard in Oakland.

The Suburban's driver died in the crash. The driver of the BMW was pulled from his vehicle after it caught fire and later pronounced dead at Highland Hospital. Neither driver's identity has been released.

Tuazon says the CHP was not pursuing the BMW at the time of the crash. It's not clear why the driver allegedly refused to pull over.
