SEATTLE - A man hurt in a two-car crash in south Seattle early Saturday died at the hospital.

The crash happened along the 5500 block of Rainier Avenue South around 3:30 a.m.

Police say just prior to the collision, two cars were travelling at high speed southbound on Rainier Ave. S. One driver later told officers he was following the other (suspect) vehicle after being the victim of a hit-and-run. The "suspect" vehicle, a silver Lexus, crossed the centerline of Rainier Avenue South and struck a Buick traveling northbound.

The Seattle Fire Department responded and extricated the two occupants from the Lexus and the driver of the Buick. All were taken to Harborview Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.

Police say the man who died was a passenger in the Lexus.
