The woman killed Wednesday in a crash with a car that was being chased by police in Port Huron has been identified.

Kristen Donahue, 48, of Chesterfield Township, died after the crash happened at about 8 a.m. at 24th and Dove streets, according to officials.

Police also released video footage of the crash.

Authorities said a Port Huron police officer attempted to pull over a white Camaro driven at a high speed by a woman and who refused to stop. The car also had three male passengers in it.

The Camaro was traveling faster than 100 mph, officials said.

The officer was a distance away when the Camaro crashed into a pickup that was making a northbound turn onto 24th Street, according to police.

The pickup sustained minimal damage and its driver was uninjured, they said.

But the Camaro struck a second vehicle, which was occupied by the Chesterfield Township woman, and then an additional vehicle, police said.

The Camaro's driver, a 35-year-old Port Huron woman, is listed in critical but stable condition at a Detroit hospital, according to officials.

Her male passengers, ages 21, 31 and 33, all from Port Huron, are being treated for injuries at different hospitals.

Police said the 21-year-old is in very critical condition in a Detroit hospital. He has an outstanding misdemeanor warrant for failing to appear in a Sanilac County Court on a destruction of property charge.

The 31-year-old is in critical condition at a Mount Clemens hospital. He is a parole absconder, they said.

The last passenger is also in critical condition at a Royal Oak hospital. He is wanted on a criminal bench warrant for failing to appear in court for a driving with a suspended license charge in Port Huron. 

Police said after they searched the suspect's car they found a handgun that was reported stolen from a Port Huron home in March.

Officials said they continue to investigate and the St. Clair County Prosecutor's Office will review the case and determine what charges it will file.
