High-speed chase near Silver Lake

The San Bernardino County Sheriff's department deputies discovered two women, ages 24 and 20, asleep in a vehicle in a turnout on Highway 138 early the other morning.

Upon investigating, the deputies discovered the vehicle had been stolen. When the deputies began questioning the women, the driver drove away at speeds as high as 100mph. The speed stopped when she crashed into another vehicle, injuring the driver.

When deputies tried to apprehend the driver, she tried once again to drive away; the deputy used the patrol car to pin her vehicle against a fence. The driver then fled into the desert where the deputies could not find her.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration statistics show that 1/3 of those killed in high-speed police chases are innocent bystanders. In addition, close to 500 people are killed every year during police pursuits.

The passenger and the other driver were taken to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

If you have been injured in an accident as a result of a high-speed chase, contact a San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who has dealt in these types of cases before.
