ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) — St. Cloud authorities say a 30-year-old man is dead and his 22-year-old pregnant passenger remains seriously hurt after the two were hit by a fleeing vehicle that was being pursued by police.

Authorities were chasing 22-year-old Timothy Richard Gilles on a felony warrant on Friday evening when Gilles' Jeep Grand Cherokee hit the driver's side of a vehicle driven by the 30-year-old man.

Gilles fled on foot, where police used a stun gun to subdue him. He was treated for minor injuries before being taken to the Stearns County Jail.

Authorities have not released the identities of the man and the 22-year-old woman, who police said is eight months pregnant and received "substantial injuries."

Police do not plan to release any more details or information about the case until Monday.
