At least one person died as a result of a multi-vehicle crash in Tacoma, the Pierce County Sheriff's Department confirms to FOX 13. 

Around 9:35 p.m. on Tuesday, a deputy was attempting to catch up to a vehicle seen driving "recklessly" in the 9600 block of Pacific Avenue. 

Shortly after the deputy called dispatch, the vehicle hit another car. 

Sgt. Darren Moss with the Pierce County Sheriff's Department said a 47-year-old woman, who was a passenger in the car, died at the scene. Her 48-year-old husband, who was the driver of the car, was injured and taken to the hospital. 

A 38-year-old man, who was the driver in the car that police were trying to stop, was injured and his passenger, a 29-year-old woman, were also taken to the hospital with injuries. 

Moss said two bus shelters were damaged on Pacific Avenue.
