Car Chase Leads to Drowning


¬†Authorities say the Des Moines woman whose car plunged into a lake following a police chase died of drowning. Polk County officials say it will take a few weeks before toxicology tests can show whether there were drugs or alcohol involved in the death of 51-year-old Brenda Hatfield. The chase began Wednesday morning after an officer tried to stop Hatfield’s car.
