WAHPETON, N.D. (AP) -- Police have identified the man who died during a police pursuit in Wahpeton.

Wahpeton police say 29-year-old Adam Alcozer died Monday night after his van crashed into a utility pole. He and passenger Emphram Luna were not wearing seats and were ejected from the van.

The pursuit lasted for only about a few blocks before the van crashed. Authorities say the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed.

The chase began when an officer spotted the van speeding through a stop sign.

Alcozer was brought to St. Francis Hospital and pronounced dead. Police say Luna remains at Sanford Hospital in Fargo.
