18-Year-Old Allegedly Leads Police on High-Speed Chase

18-Year-Old Allegedly Leads Police on High-Speed Chase

An 18-year-old was pulled from a white BMW after a high-speed chase ended on Pacific Coast Highway Thursday night. The chase allegedly exceeded 100 mph.

The incident began around 8:30 p.m. when police tried to stop the white BMW 7-Series on the 5 Freeway near Indiana St, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The 18-year-old driver is an UV Irvine student from China. When the roadway was clear, an officer attempted a PIT maneuver on the BMW. Rather than spinning out, the car simply swerved. The driver quickly pulled over and surrendered.

The chase ended on Pacific Coast Highway near Lunita Rd. around 9:15 p.m. The police handcuffed the 18-year-old and two passengers and put them all into squad cars.

The driver said the BMW was a new car and he recently obtained his driver’s license in an interview with NBC Los Angeles. He said he did not understand why he was being chased and was afraid of the California Highway Patrol.

According to officials, the student followed most of the traffic laws during the high-speed chase. He may not be facing as many charges as he would had he disobeyed the traffic laws.

Toddler Died in Now Recalled Graco Car Seat

Toddler Died in Now Recalled Graco Car Seat

Millions of Graco car seats are being recalled after concerns from the federal safety regulators about their safety in an emergency. A Los Angeles toddler died in a car fire after the buckle on her Graco car seat got stuck and her mother was unable to remov her from the seat.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s investigation has led Graco Children’s Products to recall 3.8 million car seats.

According to a letter sent to Graco by the safety agency, the car seat investigation “revealed numerous instances where the harness buckle was difficult or impossible for consumers to unlatch.”

The Los Angeles toddler that died, two-year-old Leiana Ramirez, was killed in a car fire on the Arroyo Seco Parkway in Highland Park while in a Graco Nautilus car seat. Leiana’s mother tried to remove her from the burning car, as did a bystander who was later hospitalized, but were unable to remove her in time.

According to the agency’s website, a faulty Graco buckle can make it “difficult to remove the child from the restraint, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a vehicle crash, fire, or other emergency, in which a prompt exit from the vehicle is required.”

Graco is sending replacement buckles to owners who registered their car seats. Those who did not register but want a replacement can call their hotline at 800-345-4109.

Wrong-Way Crash Kills Six

Wrong-Way Crash Kills Six

An early Sunday morning crash killed six people in a wrong-way, three-car pileup in Diamond Bar.

Authorities say 21-year-old Olivia Carolee Culbreath was drunk when she was driving her 2013 Chevrolet Camaro the wrong way on the westbound 60 Freeway.

She hit two other vehicles, killing two people in her car, and four people in a red Ford Explorer. The driver of the third car, Joel Cortez, 57, of Ontario, suffered only minor injuries. He is home recovering.

The Camaro driver, Culbreath, is listed in stable condition and will be arrested on suspicion of DUI causing great bodily injury and manslaughter when she’s released, the California Highway Patrol said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.

Investigators “believe from what they found in the vehicle that alcohol was involved, said Lt. Fred Corral of the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.

Witnesses say that Culbreath may have been driving in excess of 100 mph at the time of the crash. She is suspected of DUI.

DMV records show Culbreath has had her license suspended numerous times in connection with excessive blood-alcohol levels. At the time of the accident, her license was revoked. Culbreath was just 17 years old when she was convicted in juvenile court on April 13, 2010, of driving drunk, DMV officials said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.

A tragic accident happened Wednesday outside an elementary school when a 2-year-old toddler was struck by a car and killed, according to authorities.

The boy was with his mother, who was dropping off his sibling—a kindergarten student—at Ansgar Larsen elementary School, the school’s superintendent Dr. Jerry Dannenberg said. The School is located in Oxnard.

According to officials, the mother was walking with the boy when she stopped to talk to someone in the parking lot. A substitute teacher driving into the parking lot struck the child, according to Dannenberg.

The incident “looks like it was a complete unintended accident” and there are “no criminal elements” at play, said a spokesperson with the Oxnard Police Department.

The investigation is still ongoing. Officials have not released the name of the toddler.

A man was killed Tuesday night after a hit-and-run crash in South Los Angeles. The accident occurred around 7:30 p.m. at Wadsworth Avenue and East 106th Street, the Los Angeles County Coroner said.

The man has been identified as 19-year-old Jerry Arredondo Jr. of Los Angeles. The vehicle that fatally struck Arredondo is described as a 2013 silver Chevrolet Camaro. It is a rental car from Hertz.

“They were traveling at a high rate of speed, approximately up to maybe 100 mph on a residential street. He hit a dip at the corner of Wadsworth, lost control. The first collision was actually the victim’s car and at that point, that’s when he hit the victim, throwing the victim approximately 40 feet,” Sgt. Hendley Hawkins said in an interview with CBS Los Angeles.

The suspect has not been apprehended, allegedly fleeing the scene in a silver BMW.  The Los Angeles Police Department said Wednesday that they have contacted the driver’s uncle along with the woman who rented the Camaro. No arrests have been made at this time.
