Mountain Home Woman Dies Following Police Pursuit

MOUNTAIN HOME, AR - Authorities say a Mountain Home woman died in a car crash after a brief police pursuit.

Arkansas State Police say 47-year-old Angela Major died in the crash on Arkansas 5 outside Mountain Home early Saturday.  According to police, Trooper Daniel Riley tried to pull over Major's car after it was swerving toward the center line of the highway.
