NORTH ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -

The St. Louis Circuit Attorney's office has charged a 30-year-old with 2nd degree murder after they say he fled from police and eventually crashed into another vehicle killing a 19-year-old Monday afternoon.

According to police, Christopher Stevenson was driving a car that fit the description of a vehicle involved in a recent homicide. Police attempted to pull the vehicle over in the 4000 block of Kennerly in North St. Louis City but when the officers exited their car, Stevenson drove away. 

The officers followed the Stevenson's vehicle until they observed the car crash into another vehicle traveling south on Bishop P.L. Scott. Stevenson and the passenger of the car were taken into custody and transported to the hospital. Both suffered serious injuries and are in stable condition.

The driver of the second car, 19-year-old Treyvion Cross, was ejected from the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene. There were two other individuals in the car, both sustaining serious injuries and are in stable condition as of 1 p.m. Tuesday.

Along with being charged with second-degree murder, Stevenson is also charged with resisting arrest, armed criminal action, one count of assault in the second degree and one count of assault in the fourth degree.

Stevenson's bond is set at $150,000 cash only.
