One person was killed and another severely injured in a crash following a police chase that started in Hamden and ended in New Haven, according to state police.

Janelle Gibbs, 24, of New Haven, was killed around 2 a.m. Friday at the intersection of Quinnipiac Avenue and Foxon Boulevard following a chase with the Hamden Police, said Trooper Kelly Grant.

According to state police, Gibbs was a passenger in a stolen 2010 Ford Taurus when it flew off the right side of the road and entered the property at 1172 Quinnipiac Ave, before colliding with a tree and coming to rest in the southbound lane of the roadway.

The driver, Brandon Shealy, 22, of West Haven, received life-threatening injuries and is being treated at Yale-New Haven Hospital.

Prior to the crash, Shealy had engaged the Hamden Police in a pursuit. The vehicle had been stolen from Reservoir Avenue in the town of Trumbull, state police said.

Anyone who witnessed the crash or the moments just prior are asked to contact Trooper First Class Donald Comstock at 203-630-5649.
