Breaking News!!: Needles, CA: Video: Police pursuit passes by down the street from ZachNews.

At around 4:19am PT on Thursday, March 15th, 2018, ZachNews Photojournalist Zachary A. Lopez was going to check out a haystack fire that was burning when police sirens and the sound of something scraping was heard in the distance.

Within a few seconds, a vehicle speeds by a block away heading eastbound along Erin Drive at Orange Avenue in Needles, California with San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department patrol vehicles in pursuit.

The police pursuit went onto Bailey Avenue southbound to Lilyhill Drive where the vehicle headed eastbound towards the D Street.

A few minutes later, the vehicle got onto eastbound Interstate 40 and passed Five Mile Road.

Reports over the police and fire scanner that a traffic collision with injuries occurred in the parking lot area of Pirate Cove Resort and Marina in Needles, California, and that a medical helicopter was being called.

At this moment, there is no further information from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department or the California Highway Patrol regarding the police pursuit.
