article imageMan dead after police chase may have had medical condition

Spokane - The police chase that ended with the death of a 50 year old man may be offering up some explanations through medical reports and the autopsy.
Daniel James Marinovich, from Post Falls, Idaho, was driving erratically on Monday and several drivers called into 911 in fear. Once police arrived in the area on Highway 395 they attempted to pull over Marinovich. They then turned to spike strips and only moments after the car drove over the strip, the man lost control and drove into on coming traffic. The Ford Taurus was hit head on by a logging big-rig. He was pronounced dead on scene.
After the autopsy and identifying the man, the police investigating the indecent discovered that Marinovich was a sever diabetic. Extremely low blood sugar could explain his behaviour Monday. He had been involved in other incidents throughout the years that could be linked to diabetes. Police are still investigating.
"He was a really brittle diabetic. He had a couple episodes that were scary, and it was due to his medical condition." Vicki Shafer, a co-worker, said in an interview with The Spokesman-Review.
