A 23-year-old woman is dead following a car crash that happened when she was trying to run from Roanoke police.
Officials say law enforcement pulled Rashele Monique Lee over around 12:15 near Orange Avenue and Gainsboro Road NW Friday morning for running a stop light.
Before the officer could reach the car, Lee drove off starting a pursuit.
She then crashed into a pole in the 900 block of Moorman Avenue NW. Virginia State Police say the car overturned multiple times before she was ejected. She died on scene.
