Sponsored by:

A wanted parolee was killed while running from police.

Modesto police investigators say 39-year-old Shane Swearengin was being followed by officers when they say the wanted man spotted police and tried to ram their patrol car with his vehicle. A short chase at speeds of 80 to 90 miles per hour ensued. Swearengin ran a red light on McHenry, swerved to avoid hitting a car in the intersection and hit a light pole. He was ejected from the vehicle. Paramedics pronounced Swearengin dead at the crash scene. A passenger in his car and the driver of the other car suffered injuries and were taken to local hospitals.

Police say Swearengin was facing another felony strike.
