YONKERS, N.Y. -- The police chase that came to a fatal end on Monday evening was justified, according to Yonkers police in a story on lohud.com.
Sharlene Stinson, 46, was killed as a stolen van crashed into her sedan . The two suspects, a 16-year-old boy and 14-year-old girl, are in critical condition.
