East St. Louis, IL (KSDK) - A stolen East St. Louis police cruiser was involved in a three-car accident Wednesday morning, killing a Belleville woman and injuring another driver.

The accident happened around 8:30 a.m. at the intersection of 70th and State streets.  The chase began around 80th and State streets.

Police said there was a disturbance over a bus fare and the suspect, identified only as a 42-year-old man, hopped into a police vehicle and crashed into two cars.

Maxsimillion Quarles-Gaston, 41, died in the crash.  She was in a vehicle that was struck.  The family is asking that any donations be made to 'Christopher Ministries' Grief Support Group, which was founded by Quarles-Gaston in honor of her son who died.
