YARMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — Police say a Dennis man has died following a high-speed pursuit by officers investigating a reported break-in in Yarmouth.

Officers responding to the unoccupied home Monday morning saw a suspect fleeing on foot. Police say the suspect then jumped in an SUV and took off driving in a “dangerous and erratic” manner, almost hitting one officer, who had to jump out of the way.

Police pursued the SUV onto Union Street, where it struck another vehicle and rolled onto its roof.

The occupant, identified as 24-year-old Michael Florio, was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the other vehicle was unhurt.

The crash remains under investigation.
