Police say the crash Tuesday afternoon in New Albany killed 36-year-old Darrell Lee Taylor. They say the crash occurred after a New Albany police officer tried to pull over a Dodge Challenger for reckless driving but the vehicle fled.

It struck an SUV and crashed into a van in a parking lot. The van caught fire, but no one was inside the van. Two other people were injured.
