Investigators say they were chasing a Jeep Grand Cherokee allegedly driven by Jose when a deputy saw another vehicle, a Mitsubishi, speed past them going north on Santa Fe.

That deputy gave chase to the Mitsubishi, allegedly driven by Deanna May Bixby. She later crashed into another vehicle at Santa Fe and Mineral.
