During the chase, police say Reynolds lost control of the SUV he was driving and crashed into a tree and then a telephone pole.

The report says this caused the passenger in the truck to be ejected from the vehicle.

Reynolds got out of the truck and ran on foot but was later caught and arrested.

Five days later, the passenger died from her injuries.

Reynolds was charged with vehicular homicide and on Wednesday, pleaded guilty.

He was sentenced to 13 years in the Department of Corrections.
