WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ The Kansas Highway Patrol says an early-morning chase ended in the death of a 28-year-old Wichita man.

A Highway Patrol trooper tried to stop James Riggans early Saturday, but he fled. The patrol says Riggans lost control of his car, and slid sideways into a traffic light. The trooper at the scene said Riggans may have swerved to avoid a pedestrian.
