SUNSET HILLS, Mo. (AP) — A man fleeing from police in St. Louis County is dead after crashing into a bank building.

The accident happened around 3 a.m. Wednesday in Sunset Hills. The man killed has not been identified.

Sunset Hills police say an officer noticed a vehicle behind a building in an industrial area where thefts have been common. When the officer drove behind the building to investigate, the driver sped away.

The officer began a chase but lost sight of the car on South Lindbergh Boulevard. Soon, the officer discovered that the fleeing vehicle had left the roadway and struck a BMO Harris Bank.

The driver was ejected and pronounced dead at the scene. The accident left a large hole in the side of the bank building.
