2 dead, 2 injured after chase with FHP through Alachua County, officials say

Two people are dead and two others are injured after a crash that happened while the four were being pursued by Florida Highway Patrol in Alachua County, officials said. 

Early Saturday morning, the Bradford County Sheriff's Office requested assistance from FHP as they pursued a stolen Honda CRV from Alachua County, FHP said. 

The Honda exited U.S. 301 and began traveling westbound on State Road 24 in the Waldo area with four people inside that appeared to be wearing ski masks. 

The FHP trooper made "intentional contact" with the Honda, causing it to decelerate. The trooper then performed a PIT maneuver on the Honda. 

The Honda then rolled over before crashing into a cement pole.
