A driver who fled a traffic stop was arrested after leading police on a brief pursuit Saturday. The incident began when a deputy witnessed the driver of a Toyota Tacoma doing donuts in the Victorville fairgrounds parking lot around 12:40 a.m. He attempted a traffic stop, but the driver fled onto 7th Street and then down La Paz Drive toward Mariposa Road.

Police followed the Tacoma, which was traveling around 60 MPH. Eventually the driver lost control of the truck and it rolled over on Llanada Avenue east of Village Drive. The driver was arrested, but it is unclear what he has been charged with.

More than 5,000 bystanders and passengers have died and thousands more have been injured in police chases since 197, according to USA TODAY. Fleeing a traffic stop is not only illegal and unethical, but it also puts innocent bystanders at risk of being injured or killed in the pursuit.

“This driver not only endangered lives by performing illegal stunts in a parking lot, but also by leading police on a chase. We hope to see him held responsible for endangering the public,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group
