Early Friday morning a pedestrian was struck and killed by a suspect on a motorcycle while being pursued by the California Highway Patrol. The chase began shortly before midnight on the southbound 605 Freeway at Whittier Boulevard when authorities attempted to stop the suspect for running a red light. The suspect went through
a number of freeways, including the 605 and 101 freeways, exited Alameda Street and hit the pedestrian on Main Street. Paramedics arrived at the scene to treat the pedestrian, but was pronounced dead at the scene. The suspect was treated at a hospital after sustaining multiple injuries and was placed under arrest.
The Los Angeles Motorcycle Lawyers urge every Motorcyclist to follow the law and if you feel the need for speed and adrenaline go to the Race Track. Our deepest condolences goes out to the family of the struck pedestrian.
