LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A 3-year-old child is dead from injuries in a car crash stemming from an altercation involving a chase.

Louisville police spokeswoman Alicia Smiley told The Courier-Journal an altercation between two adults was reported late Sunday night. She said one adult fled in a car with two young children and the other gave chase on a motorcycle. The first vehicle crashed.

accident found the driver of the car was shot and the person on the
motorcycle was cut. Smiley said it was unclear when the injuries
happened.
