ST. MARTIN, MS (WLOX) - The woman who died in a car chase with police Thursday night has been identified as Millicent Sue Smith, 48, of D'Iberville. Authorities say she was killed when her son, Marshall Smith, 24, lost control of his vehicle and slammed it into a tree while being chased by police.
Investigators say it all started when Marshall and several other people got into a fight at a restaurant on Central Avenue in D'Iberville and Marshall took off in his vehicle, slamming into a car in the parking lot.
The police chase that ensued ended less than a mile away on Quave Road in St. Martin. Millicent Smith died at the scene.
Marshall Smith was taken to the hospital. He'd just been released from jail last month and was on probation for burglary. The state has now issued a warrant for probation violation.
