Man Killed in Police Chase

A man died in a car wreck after being chased by police in Baldwin County, Alabama (05NOV06). Calvin Matthew Bemis, 34, had left his house just as police were arriving after a domestic disturbance. After being chased by Gulf Shores police officers, Bemis lost control of his car, driving off the road and hitting a tree. According to coroner Huey Mack Sr., Bemis was pronounced dead at the scene on Fort Morgan Road. Mack says, "He drove off the road and hit the trees. He was on the straight way, and we don't know exactly what happened. The manner of death is still under investigation. It was the opinion of some that it might not have been an accident, but we're going to have to wait until the dust settles to tell."
