Ground units were quickly pulled off the chase, and Air One took over from the sky.

The driver headed north on Portland then went eastbound in the westbound lane on S.W. 54th. The car hit a curb and flipped several times at S.W. 54th and Portland.

The driver was thrown from the car and died at the scene.

There's no word yet on whether alcohol was involved.
