MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Police are hunting for people involved in a fatal crash that followed a brief police chase in Milwaukee.

Police say a 33-year-old woman was killed in the two-vehicle crash early Sunday, and one or more people involved may have fled the scene.

Lt. Mark Stanmeyer tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (http://bit.ly/19t4nG3 ) officers tried to stop a car driving erratically without headlights around 2 a.m., but ended the chase when the car refused to pull over.

The Pontiac Aztek crossed into oncoming traffic and was struck by a Ford Escort a short time later, killing a passenger in the Aztek. The Escort driver and passengers in both vehicles were taken to hospitals but are expected to live.

Police are looking for occupants of both vehicles suspected of fleeing on foot.
