Aggravated manslaughter charges have been filed against a northern New Jersey man accused of leading police on a chase that ended when his stolen vehicle crashed, killing a female passenger.
Union County prosecutors say 42-year-old David Graham of Newark is also charged with eluding and unlawful taking of a motor vehicle. He's being held on $650,000 bail, and it's not known if he has retained an attorney.
The chase started around 4:50 p.m. Friday, when Union Township police attempted to stop a pickup truck that had been reported stolen out of Newark.
Graham eventually lost control of the truck, which struck a utility pole on Route 22 East in Hillside. He then tried to flee on foot but was soon captured.
The woman killed in the crash hasn't been identified.
