Motorist Crashes Into Palm Tree After Leading Montebello Police in Pursuit

By City News Service

Montebello police arrested a motorist who led them on a chase that ended when the SUV he was driving crashed into a palm tree in Santa Fe Springs Friday.

The pursuit ended about 8:25 a.m. at Florence Avenue and Orr and Day Road, said Montebello police Lt. Mike Flores. No injuries were reported. Police did not immediately release the name of the suspect.

Flores said the man was driving a Toyota 4-Runner that apparently was involved in a hit-and-run crash earlier Friday.

Officers saw the SUV and tried to pull over the driver at Montebello and Whittier boulevards in Montebello. The driver refused to pull over, and police pursued him to the location where the vehicle crashed, Flores said.
