HELENA — A Miles City woman died in a crash as Garfield County officers pursued her for driving a stolen sport utility vehicle.

The sheriff's office says they were called to an altercation between two people in Jordan Tuesday night. Before officers arrived, a 22-year-old woman drove way from the scene in a green Ford Explorer.

An officer briefly pursued the vehicle until the driver made a U-turn and started to travel back toward Jordan.

On the edge of the town limits, the SUV went into the ditch, overturned and caught fire.
