A recent incident in South Los Angeles has left one person hospitalized in a coma after being involved in a police pursuit crash. The victim, Yolanda Reyna, 43, was hit by a suspected DUI driver who was running from the police.
The collision took place at the intersection of Main Street and Florence Avenue on February 16, 2023. The driver, identified as Dashawn Sutton, has been arrested and charged with various criminal offenses, including DUI, hit-and-run, and DUI causing injury.
The police officers were pursuing Sutton when he ran a red light and crashed into Reyna’s vehicle, causing serious injuries to the victim. Incidents like this serve as a stark reminder of the dangers of drunk driving and the risks associated with police pursuits. Police pursuits may be necessary in some instances, but they can also put innocent lives at risk.
In this case, Reyna was an innocent victim who was caught in the crossfire of a high-speed chase.
