Man killed in police chase crash identified

MERRILL, WI (WTAQ) - A man killed in a car crash while being chased by authorities near Merrill has been identified as 23-year-old Justin Eichelt of Lublin in Taylor County. 

He was being pursued by Lincoln County deputies late Tuesday afternoon for kidnapping his three-week-old daughter, in violation of a court order that the child be referred to Taylor County Human Services.  

The girl was born drug dependent. She was taken to a hospital along with an 18-year-old female passenger from Weston. 

Authorities would not say if the woman was the child's mother. Both suffered undisclosed injuries.

Officials said Eichelt was not wearing a seat belt, and was ejected in the crash.

The incident remains under investigation.
