The California Highway Patrol says a police chase has ended with seven people dead, including four children. CHP says police in Dinuba were trying to stop a car Saturday afternoon for a traffic infraction.

Patrol Sgt. Jon Baker says the driver went through a stop sign during the pursuit and collided with a pickup truck.

The Fresno Bee reports that five children were in the truck and four of them were ejected and died at the scene. It says the surviving child and two adults in that vehicle were taken to Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno.

The Bee also reports all three people in the car being followed by police were killed.
