This Is What Could Happen If You Run From The Police

By JJohnson | November 3, 2009

Sunday, November 1st at around 3:15 in the afternoon, the Long Beach Fire Department received a call for an injury traffic accident with a vehicle fire at the corner of Del Amo Blvd. and Atlantic Ave. Engine and Truck 11 were on scene quickly and after viewing the severity of the damage, it was determined by the Captain that extrication of the victim was in order. The small fire was extinguished by a bystander who had a Dry Chemical extinguisher. The driver was traveling at a high rate of speed when he smashed into a traffic pole about a half mile North of Del Amo on Atlantic. After about 10 mins of cutting the car from around the victim using the Jaws of Life, the man was taken to a local hospital in traumatic full arrest, and was pronounced dead a while later.
