Man Fatally Injured in Kingsburg Police Chase Crash on Highway 99

 
KINGSBURG, CA (February 28, 2019) – A man died after the Nissan he was driving plowed into a utility pole following a police chase on Monday, February 25.
 
The car also struck and bent another thick pole before it came to a stop in an orchard. The driver, a 25-year-old man, was pronounced dead at the scene.
 
 
Just minutes before the incident, the California Highway Patrol said that he blew by a patrol officer on Highway 99, going at least 100 mph.
 
The officer tried to make a stop, but the driver of the Nissan kept driving.  He took the Merritt Drive exit and continued traveling on some other county roads before going onto Drive 60, which runs parallel to 99.
 
The CHP says he was still going over 100 mph when he struck a curve.
 
As a result of that high speed, the driver failed to safely negotiate the curve, according to CHP Lt. Robert Brunnel. The Nissan ran off the east side of the road, where it hit a utility pole, and then rolled over into a vineyard.
 
There was only one officer involved in the high-speed chase, Lt. Robert Brunnel.
 
The CHP is still collecting all evidence and investigating the collision, but they say they have reason to believe the 25-year-old driver was intoxicated.
