A man who led police on a high-speed chase in Chicago has been charged with murder in the death of a motorist killed in a collision with one of the police cars, authorities said.

Twenty-year-old Timothy Jones, of the West Pullman neighborhood, now faces multiple charges, including murder, home invasion, armed robbery and leaving the scene of an accident. Police announced the charges Friday in a news release.

Wednesday's chase began when officers responding to a report of a man forcing his way into a home spotted the suspect in a vehicle.

During the pursuit, a police SUV collided with a vehicle driven by Jacqueline Reynolds. The Cook County medical examiner's Office says Reynolds was pronounced dead at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

Jones was expected in bond court today.
