Police seek man who rammed minivan, killed girl

WESTMINSTER, Calif. (AP) - Police say a suspect fleeing from officers in his car in Orange County rammed a minivan, killing an 11-year-old girl and badly injuring her mother and another child.

Westminster police spokesman Cameron Knauerhaze (NOW'-ur-hays) tells KABC-TV police tried to pull over the suspect at about 6 p.m. Thursday night when he fled, first ramming a police car then driving for two blocks before hitting the minivan.

Police say the suspect's car flipped over, but he ran away and had yet to be caught hours later. Police set up a perimeter in the area and were using dogs to search for the suspect.

The mother and child were taken to University of California, Irvine Medical Center.
