Three people in a vehicle that was taken during a carjacking died when the driver crashed during a police chase in Minneapolis early Monday, according to police. 

At 1:44 a.m., Minneapolis police saw a vehicle near Dowling and Logan avenues that had been taken during a "carjacking with force" Sunday morning.

When police tried to pull the vehicle over, the driver fled at a "high rate of speed," police said. 

During the ensuing chase, the suspect vehicle "got substantially ahead" of police and they saw the vehicle lose control and roll near Emerson Avenue and 18th Avenue North, according to police. 

The three people inside the car died in the one-vehicle crash, police said. The medical examiner will release their identities at a later time.

Squad car video captured the incident and will be used in the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension's investigation. The BCA was called in to conduct an independent investigation, as is common practice in officer-involved deaths.
