Charges related to the fatal Michigan State Police crash on July 3 have been filed against two Flint residents.
A 28-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman are expected to appear in court today on multiple charges.
On July 3 a Michigan State Police trooper attempted to pull over a vehicle, but the vehicle fled and went through a stop sign.
The trooper pursued the vehicle and crashed into another vehicle while going through an intersection at Pierson Road and North Street.
64-year-old Jacqueline Nichols, a passenger in the struck vehicle, died as a result.
Police say Lee continued to flee on North Street and crashed into a utility pole. Police say Lee then left the vehicle and ran away on foot. Witnesses told police that a woman also left the vehicle on the passenger side, and then got back in on the driver's side and drove away. The vehicle was later abandoned and reported by Dent as stolen.
The male suspect is expected to be charged with fleeing police causing death, two counts of fleeing police resulting in serious injury, carrying a concealed weapon, and felon in possession of a firearm.
The female suspect is expected to be charged with tampering with evidence, accessory after the fact to a felony, false report of a felony, and lying to a peace officer.
