Man killed during police pursuit

Posted: Updated:
An early morning crash killed a man driving on KY 91 in Marion, Kentucky.

KSP troopers say Deandre White was traveling southbound when a Marion police officer attempted a traffic stop.  White failed to yield to emergency equipment and continued traveling southbound on KY 91 at a high rate of speed.  White failed to negotiate a curve and left the shoulder of the roadway and hit a ditch.  White's vehicle then struck a culvert and overturned, ejecting him.

White was not wearing a seat belt and was pronounced dead at the scene by the Crittenden County coroner.
