HOUSTON (AP) — Officials say a 22-year-old man has died after he lost control of his car and slammed into trees and a parked car while fleeing from police trying to pull him over for incorrect license plates.

The Houston Chronicle (http://bit.ly/O4gEfv ) reports that police said the man refused to stop on Friday morning. Officers then followed him.

Police said that the man was tossed from the vehicle during the crash. He was taken to an area hospital, where he died.

No squad cars were involved in the crash and no officers were hurt.
