CHICAGO (AP) - Authorities say two people including an off-duty Chicago police officer have died following an early-morning crash.

Chicago police say the officer was driving in his personal SUV when it collided about 1 a.m. Tuesday with a vehicle being driven by a woman in the city's Lawndale neighborhood.

Police say they're working to determine what led to the crash. They say that evidence at the scene suggests the collision occurred at a high rate of speed.

Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson offered condolences to the family of the police officer and the woman who died in the crash.
