Montebello Police Arrest Suspect In Pico Rivera

By City News Service

A man wanted for a restraining order violation in Montebello crashed his car into another vehicle in Pico Rivera on Sunday, at the same time police said they were on their way to his house to arrest him.

The crash, at Washington and Paramount Boulevards, occurred about 12:10 a.m., Montebello police Lt. Ron Santo said. The suspect was taken into custody.

“We were not in pursuit of the suspect,” Santo said, although the man may have known police were looking for him.

He said sheriff’s deputies from the Pico Rivera station were investigating the crash.

A videographer at the scene said a Nissan 350 Z struck a Toyota Tacoma head-on, and an 83-year-old woman in the Toyota was taken to a hospital, as was the Nissan driver, who may have been in a Halloween outfit.

County firefighters confirmed two people were taken to hospitals.
