4 Die in Compton Crash After LASD Chase

December 16, 2013  | 

Four people were killed in Compton on Saturday morning after a high-speed pursuit by Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies ended with the pursued car slamming into another vehicle before flipping and bursting into flames, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The collision happened about 12:30 a.m. at the intersection of West Greenleaf Boulevard and South Wilmington Avenue, said Sheriff's Sgt. Peter Ramirez. The car was being pursued after it was pulled over by deputies who believed it matched the description of a vehicle used in a shooting that had just occurred. As the deputies got out of their cruiser, the car sped off, starting the chase.

After about two miles, the pursued car — carrying a woman and two men — ran a red light and crashed into another vehicle before slamming into a light pole, a brick wall and a garage. After catching fire, it ended up so badly burned that dental records and fingerprints may be needed to officially identify the three occupants, and it could take days to figure out the car's make and model, Ramirez said.

The car it hit — a gray Chevrolet Monte Carlo — veered out of control and also hit a wall, ending up crumpled on a sidewalk about 15 yards from the intersection.

So I'm assuming the driver of the other vehicle is dead? You only confirm the three in the fleeing car. Would be nice, even if you can't release names yet, to give the innocent victim a mention... not just their car.

the vehicle must have T-boned the driver killing him/her instantly and the force of the probably smaller vehicle hitting the heavy Monte Carlo bounced it into the garage and ruptured the gas lines on it. I guess they got the shooting suspects too.
