Florida Woman Killed While Fleeing Police

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Police say a woman was killed in a crash shortly after trying to run over two people who were walking on a sidewalk in Tampa.

According to Tampa police, the crash took place moments after a fight broke out early Friday between two women at the Interstate Lounge. Several witnesses and an officer saw a car accelerate and drive on the sidewalk where two pedestrians were walking. One jumped out of the way and the other was knocked down.

The officer pursued the car, which crashed when 25-year-old Kathleen Trombley lost control and slammed into a pole. She died at the scene and 38-year-old Patrick Simmons was taken to the hospital with a broken leg.

The pedestrians weren’t injured. It’s not clear whether they had been fighting with the driver.
