One dead after Nashville police chase

NASHVILLE — One person is dead and two others injured after officers attempted to stop a vehicle they believed was stolen and the driver fled, Nashville police said.

Officers pursued the vehicle as it sped away Thursday morning, police said, and then the driver lost control and slammed into a parked truck, forcing the truck into a home. Nobody inside the home was injured.

Killed was 16-year-old Kristopher Howard of Nashville, a passenger who was partially ejected.

Another 16-year-old was driving. He was treated at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and released. Police said he was being booked into juvenile detention and will face charges of vehicular homicide among others.

Another passenger, 36-year-old Carmilla Ellison, was admitted to Vanderbilt with serious injuries. Warrants issued against her include auto theft and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
