A driver who fled a traffic stop led police on a high speed chase across several counties last week. Riverside County sheriff’s deputies responded to a suspicious vehicle report from the Morongo Casino in Cabazon around 8 a.m. As deputies arrived, the car, a Toyota Camry, was being driven away. Police attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver fled.

Police followed the vehicle onto the westbound 60 Freeway in Los Angeles County, north onto the 605, then east into San Bernardino County. The high speed chase finally ended when the suspect stopped on the 215 Freeway near Palm Avenue. He got out of the vehicle holding an unidentified object and walked across the freeway to the Palm Avenue overpass. Deputies were able to wrestle him to the ground and arrest him.

The suspect was injured in the struggle and was taken to the hospital around 10:30 a.m. Both lanes of the 215 reopened about 10 minutes later.

“High speed chases put officers and innocent motorists on the road in danger. We’re thankful that despite this chase lasting two hours, no one was seriously hurt,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
