ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Authorities say a bystander struck by a stolen car that was being chased by Bernalillo County Sheriff's deputies has died.

They say Robert Chavez died Friday, 11 days after he was severely injured in a multi-car pileup.

Sheriff's officials have yet to release the name of the driver of the stolen car.

They plan to pursue homicide by vehicle charges against the driver.

Albuquerque TV station KRQE reports that sheriff's officials are conducting an internal investigation to determine their deputies' involvement in the crash.
