Watch: California crash kills kidnapping suspect after victim escapes

Police say a woman was attacked and kidnapped Sunday in San Francisco but escaped before the suspects led police on a chase across the Bay Bridge that ended in a fiery, fatal crash.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported the woman was forced into the car's trunk but was able to open it and escape. San Francisco police officials said the woman was assaulted by a man and a woman around 3 p.m. Sunday in front of witnesses.

Police spotted the white vehicle and chased it into Emeryville. Emeryville police officials said the driver lost control at an intersection, and the car slammed into a light pole and burst into flames.

The driver was pulled from the vehicle, but the passenger died. The victim is in a San Francisco hospital.
