WELD COUNTY, Colo. — A man wanted in Minnesota was killed in a crash while leading troopers on a chase in Weld County Thursday afternoon, according to the Colorado State Patrol (CSP). 

Troopers said the driver was wanted on a parole violation out of Minnesota. The chase started in Wyoming and continued south into Colorado.

The Weld County Coroner's Office on Tuesday identified the driver as Craig R. Licari, 66. Licari was convicted in 2000 in Minnesota of killing his wife, Nancy.

Troopers said law enforcement deployed stop sticks in the area of Highway 85 and County Road 76, which is just north of Eaton. Licari's car kept moving and crashed into a CSP patrol car, causing it to roll. The trooper sustained minor injuries in the crash, CSP said. 

Licari's car went off the road and into a drainage ditch. Troopers said he died of injuries sustained in the crash. They believe he was not wearing his seat belt.
