PHOENIX – An Arizona law officer has died after being struck by another officer’s patrol car while laying down spike strips during a high-speed chase.

The Department of Public Safety says 28-year-old Chris Marano died Thursday night.

Lt. Steve Harrison says the chase reached speeds of 100 mph, starting after a vehicle was spotted with a stolen license plate.

As another officer pursued the suspect, Marano laid down spike strips to stop the suspect’s vehicle. The DPS vehicle struck Marano in the roadway. Authorities are trying to determine if the suspect’s car also hit him.

The chase continued and the female driver fled on foot and was captured hiding on a porch. She was taken to a hospital for treatment of dog bites and faces several felony charges.
