 IMPERIAL, MO (KTVI) Three people are dead and a fourth is hospitalized after a high speed chase on Northbound I-55 ended in a crash.

The driver was pulled over by the Highway Patrol for speeding but according to our partners at the Post Dispatch when the trooper got out of his cruiser the driver sped away. The chase covered about 30 miles before the driver tried to exit at Imperial, Main Street and lost control of the vehicle which then flipped over.

The three fatalities which include the driver were all ejected when the vehicle flipped over.  The fourth person in the vehicle is hospitalized with serious injuries.

No other cars were involved.

The accident has slowed down northbound traffic while emergency crews clear the Interstate.
