BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Alabama authorities say three people were killed — including an infant — when an SUV fleeing a robbery slammed into their vehicle in Birmingham.

Birmingham police Sgt. Matthew Nicosia says a man, woman and the child were killed in the Monday night collision.

Police tell AL.com that officers began chasing the suspects’ white SUV after a Walker County robbery. The chase wound through that county and entered west Birmingham.

Birmingham police Sgt. John Callahan says the suspects’ SUV ran a red light and then crashed into the vehicle. All three people in the car that was hit were pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities say the suspects fled on foot into nearby woods, and a helicopter was dispatched to search for them.
