Police: Parolee Flees Police, Causes Fatal Crash in Elgin
A man fled police Tuesday evening, speeding down Elgin streets and running stop signs and traffic lights before causing a crash authorities said killed a man and critically injured a 35-year-old woman, according to the Chicago Tribune. 

Around 5 p.m., Elgin police  pulled over the man, who was wanted on a state parole violation for a previous evading arrest conviction, the Chicago Tribune reports.  

Stephen Luellen sped away from police, ran a stop sign at the intersection of Jefferson Avenue and Liberty Street and  broadsided the vehicle, which rolled into an Elgin home, according to CBS Chicago. 

Police said they  were not chasing the fugitive when the crash occurred, according to ABC7 Chicago. 

The identity of the 40-year-old man killed in the crash is not being released at this time pending notification of his family, according to the Daily Herald. 

A female passenger in Luellen's car  was taken to Sherman Hospital in critical condition while Luellen was taken to St. Alexius Medical Center in Hoffman Estates for non-life-threatening injuries, according to the Daily Herald.
