PITTSBURGH (AP) – A Pennsylvania prosecutor says early indications are local police didn’t wrongly “push” a suspect who may have driven 100 mph to avoid officers before crashing into a car and killing a family of three on Thanksgiving.

Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala Jr. tells reporters Tuesday that state police will use drones and other devices to measure and attempt to reconstruct the crash that killed David Bianco, his fiancee, Kaylie Meininger, and their 2-year-old daughter.

That happened while police from East McKeesport and North Versailles were chasing 22-year-old Demetrius Coleman about 2:20 p.m. Police stopped Coleman making an illegal turn, but police say he sped away on busy Route 30 after police learned he had an arrest warrant in a drug case.

Coleman remains in custody without an attorney.
