Orange County 100 mph police chase kills 2 victims.
Anaheim, CA (JusticeNewsFlash.com)—A brief high-speed chase, through the streets of Anaheim, left one dead, and three people in critical condition on Monday night, as reported by the Los Angeles Times. The California police pursuit began when Anaheim Police officers responded to an assault call at a gas station located on the corner of Brookhurst Street and Crescent Avenue around 7:30 p.m.
The assailants fled the scene causing a high-speed police chase to ensue; speeds were reported to have reached an upwards of 100 mph in the mile-long pursuit. California accident investigators identified, Oscar Javier Delatorre Villalobos, 22, of Menifee, as the driver of the suspected vehicle. The pursuit abruptly ended when the assailant’s car careened through a red light, collided with two other vehicles, overturned both the suspect’s car and an innocent victim’s car, and sent one other motor vehicle into an apartment building.
The innocent victim of the overturned vehicle, an unidentified man from Anaheim, was pronounced dead on the scene. The other unidentified victim plus the assailant of the deadly police pursuit were both transported by Orange County area emergency medical services (EMS) crews to an Anaheim area hospital for treatment of their critical injuries. The victim of the assault attack at the gas station also suffered injuries. Anaheim Police Department investigators are still trying to determine why the unidentified man at the gas station was assaulted. Police investigators believe the cause may be road rage related. Witnesses have stated all people involved in this horrific vehicle collision are young males.
