Source said he witnessed a vehicle excessively speeding (Possibly over 100 mph) when the accident happened. A Silver vehicle possibly a Sanata  hit a Jeep. 

They said this appears that it may have originated as a police chase, then turned into an auto accident.  Witnesses said someone tried to flee the scene on foot after the accident, but officers were able to stop them.

RPD says a Silver car and a Gray SUV were northbound on Alpine when the car rear-ended the SUV.  The driver of the SUV was the one who passed away on scene.  Passenger of the car was transported to the hospital with life threatening injuries, and the driver of the car was transported with non life threatening injuries.  They said speed was a factor in the accident.
