Pedestrian Dead, Brian Jesse Leon Arrested after Los Angeles Motorcycle Crash

 
LOS ANGELES, CA (June 3, 2019) – A pedestrian died after a motorcyclist identified as Brian Jesse Leon struck him on Thursday, May 30.
 
Officers initially tried to stop the 27-year-old motorcyclist on suspicion of running a red light. However, he refused to pull over, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Jeremy Tolen. It took place in an unincorporated area near Whittier at around 11:40 p.m.
 
Authorities pursued Leon as drove south on the 605 and north on the 5 and 101 freeways on a 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 250 sport motorcycle. The motorcycle reached up to 107 mph during the pursuit, which kept going past midnight, Tolen stated.
 
Leon eventually exited the 101 Freeway in downtown L.A. at speed up to 60 mph. He then ran a red light and crashed into a pedestrian crossing a crosswalk on Arcadia Street near Main Street.
 
The pedestrian, whose identity was not immediately available, died at the scene. Paramedics took Leon to County-USC Medical Center, where he is listed in critical condition.
 
Officers arrested Leon on suspicion of murder and fleeing a peace officer resulting in death.
 
The bike is registered to a woman from Whittier. It’s not yet determined if she loaned it to Leon or whether it was another joyride.
