Shortly after 10:15 p.m. Saturday, passing through the intersection at North Davidson Street and Parkwood Avenue in Charlotte, Latia Winchester's maroon Chevrolet Impala was broadsided by a car being chased by an N.C. Highway Patrol cruiser, authorities said.

Winchester, 25, died immediately. Witnesses said she wasn't wearing a seat belt and apparently was thrown from her car, which slammed into the side of a house at 1617 North Davidson.

The chase began after a silver Cadillac driven by Eddie Bernard Ellison, 41, had stopped, U-turned and sped away from a routine highway patrol checkpoint at 30th Street and The Plaza, patrol spokesman Sgt. J.E. Brewer said Sunday.
