LIBBY, Mont. -

LIBBY, Mont. (AP) - A brief law enforcement pursuit of a reported reckless driver near Libby ended in a fiery crash that killed a 31-year-old Missoula man.
  
Montana Highway Patrol Sgt. Neil Duram says several citizens reported a reckless driver on U.S. Highway 2 at about 5 p.m. Thursday.
  
Duram said he tried to pull the driver over but he sped off, swerving in and out of traffic.
  
Duram said Friday the pursuit lasted for just over a minute and covered less than 2 miles (3 kilometers) before the man's car swerved, struck a light pole in Libby and caught fire.
  
The crash is still being investigated. The man's name hasn't been released.
