An innocent motorist was killed in Anaheim Monday evening after a suspect who was fleeing police plowed through an intersection against a red-light and crashed into two cars. The chase began after police, who were responding to a domestic violence call, noticed a pick up truck parked in a nearby lot. They approached the vehicle and the suspect took off. The police followed in hot pursuit, pursuing the pick-up as it blazed into the intersection of Magnolia and Crescent Avenues. The suspect’s vehicle then crashed into two cars at around 8 p.m.
One of the vehicles was propelled into a nearby apartment building; the victim was killed on impact. The suspect’s truck was thrown 100 yards and tipped on its side. The individual was taken to a local area hospital in critical condition.
