News outlets report the unidentified man died Sunday. Biloxi police say they tried to stop the man when he was spotted near a highway but he failed to stop. He then sped down another highway before crashing into another car that then rolled over at the top of a draw bridge.

The man's Nissan Altima was found near D'Iberville city limits. Police say they found him dead inside in the car.

The driver of the car he crashed into was treated for minor injuries.

The investigation is ongoing.
