Brian Leon Faces Murder Charge for Killing Pedestrian in High-Speed Chase in Los Angeles

 
LOS ANGELES, CA (May 30, 2019) – A pedestrian was killed after being struck by a motorcyclist during a high-speed pursuit in downtown Los Angeles.
 
The pursuit began late Thursday evening around 11:40 p.m. when officers attempted to stop the motorcyclist who had allegedly run a red light.
 
The chase covered about 20 miles on sections of three freeways, 605, 5 and Highway 101. The motorcyclist reached speeds up to 107 mph during the pursuit. He eventually exited the freeway and struck the pedestrian near Arcadia and Main streets.
 
The victim, whose identity has not yet been released, was pronounced dead at the scene.
 
The rider, identified as a 27-year-old Brian Jesse Leon of Los Angeles, was taken to County-USC Medical Center, where he remains in critical condition.
 
Leon was held on two outstanding warrants and will face possible charges of murder and evading a peace officer.
 
He also has an arrest warrant for an unspecified parole violation and a $50,000 traffic warrant, authorities said.
