ELKHART, Ind. (AP) — Authorities have released the name of a driver who died after fleeing from officers and crashing in a northern Indiana city.

The Elkhart Police Department says officers responding about 5 a.m. Sunday to a call of a screaming woman saw an SUV leaving the area. Officers chasing the SUV say the driver disregarded railroad crossing arms, then hit a parked car and struck a downtown post office building.

The Elkhart County Prosecutors Office on Monday identified the man as 31-year-old Michael Mattox of Elkhart. The investigation into his death is ongoing.
