Los Angeles- 2 People Killed In Crash After Early-Morning CHP Pursuit
The driver of a car involved in a California Highway Patrol pursuit was killed when his car crashed into several parked vehicles in a San Fernando Valley neighborhood in Los Angeles. CHP officers pulled the driver of a 1997 white Toyota Paseo over around 1 am for an expired registration and excessive speed. After initially stopping, the driver sped away. CHP officers chased the vehicle onto southbound Reseda Boulevard but ended the chase after the car speeding, running through red lights. The vehicle then reportedly veered off the road and into a CVS pharmacy parking lot, where it collided with several parked cars. The driver was ejected from his vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene. 2 people inside one of the parked cars were taken to the hospital after they were injured from the crash. One of these 2 people injured died at the hospital after being taken there. The deceased victim was reportedly a woman about 50 years old.
