 An Alcorn State student dead and another hospitalized after a chase that went through the campus and onto MS 552 Tuesday evening.

Trooper Eric Henry, with the Mississippi Highway Patrol, says around 5:30 p.m., 26-year-old Khalil Abdurrahman of Greenville was stopped at the guard gate because an officer smelled marijuana coming from inside the vehicle.

When the officer tried to take the contraband, the driver sped off at a high rate of speed, and almost hit another campus police officer in his cruiser.

Campus police pursued the vehicle off campus onto MS 552 west where the driver lost control and hit a tree.

The driver and the passenger were both ejected from the vehicle and it became fully engulfed in flames. The female passenger, identified as Rikessa Lee of Webb, Mississippi, was died at the scene. Abdurrahman is at UMMC in stable condition.

The accident is under investigation.
