Three People Killed in San Diego Police Chase on Raven and Market Street
San Diego, CA (October 29, 2020) – On Tuesday, Dashaun Heard, 15, Daniel Montano, 17, and Vincent Crespo, 14, died in a police chase on Market Street and Raven Street.
Apparently, a driver of a reportedly stolen vehicle fled from a San Diego police officer in the Sherman Heights area, and crashed roughly two miles away, near a Mount Hope intersection.
The police chase began at 11:01 p.m. near the intersection of 24th Street and Island Avenue.
A San Diego police officer ran the license plate of a 2003 Honda Pilot and determined the SUV was stolen.
The officer attempted to pull the SUV over, however, its driver took off. The officer lost sight of the vehicle as it went eastbound on Market Street near Interstate 15.
Further, a police helicopter continued tracking the SUV until it crashed less than five minutes after the pursuit started.
The vehicle crashed near the intersection of Market Street and Raven Street. Over a half-mile east of Interstate 15.
Authorities pronounced the driver and two passengers in the vehicle dead at the scene. Meanwhile, the rescuers took a third passenger to a hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries.
The coroner’s office later released the names of the deceased as 17-year-old Daniel Montano, 15-year-old Dashaun Heard, and 14-year-old Vincent Crespo.
