Virginia fugitive dies after police chase, crash in West Virginia

By  | 

DUNBAR, W.Va. (AP) -- A police report says a Virginia fugitive died from injuries suffered in a police chase in West Virginia.

The Charleston Gazette Mail reports Dunbar police have been tight-lipped about the March 11 chase, but released the report after the newspaper filed a Freedom of Information Act request.

The report says 31-year-old Daniel Chad Waller of Norfolk, Virginia, was a "wanted fugitive" and gave police a false name during a traffic stop before officers determined his identity.

The report says Waller fled, lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a building. It says he died April 8 due to his injuries.

The report didn't indicate what charges Waller faced. A Virginia State Police spokeswoman said state law prohibits police from disclosing a person's criminal record.
