Three dead in Highway 54 crash near JC

A police chase ends with three people dead on Highway 54.

The Highway Patrol says Demarius Rubin tried to drive away from Jefferson City police in a stolen pickup. The 29-year-old Memphis man crossed over to the wrong lanes of Highway 54 just southwest of the capital near Goller Road at about noon Sunday. He hit a car head-on.

Rubin is dead. So is the Saint Louis couple in the car; 91-year-old Bernard Steffel, and 89-year-old Marilyn Steffel.
