SHELOCTA, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say a man died after a crash following a police pursuit in western Pennsylvania.

The Armstrong County coroner’s office says Elderton police tried to pull over a car on Route 422 in Plumcreek Township shortly before 8 p.m. Friday, but it continued heading east.

Coroner Brian Myers said the driver lost control of the vehicle, which went into the air and off the road, landing upside-down in a wooded area.

The driver was thrown from the car and pronounced dead at the scene. His identity wasn’t immediately available.

The coroner’s office and state police are investigating.
