Los Angeles-Homeless Man Killed Due To Motorcycle Chase In Between Main And Arcadia Streets
A homeless man was reportedly hit by a motorcycle fleeing from a California Patrol Highway officer in between Main and Arcadia Streets near the 101 Freeway exit ramp late last week in Los Angeles. According to Sarah Ardalani, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles county coroner’s office, the victim was identified to be in his 50’s. The identity of the man was not released. At one point, the motorcycle chase’s speed reached over 100 miles per hour at some point. The chase started in Whittier at about 11:40 pm. 27-year old Brian Jesse Leon apparently ran a red light while riding his motorcycle. The chase between Leon and a CHP officer continued on to 605 south to the freeway before ending up in downtown Los Angeles. The motorcycle was speeding at about 107 miles per hour during the chase. Leon reported struck the unidentified homeless man along a crosswalk when the chase ended up in downtown Los Angeles.
