Officers Arrest Suspect in Eighth Street Crash
Westlake, CA (March 18, 2022) – On Thursday, three people sustained injuries in a multi-vehicle crash on Eighth Street.
At about 1:35 a.m., the authorities responded to reports of assault with a deadly weapon near Lucille Avenue.
Apparently, the armed suspect drove away as the authorities were approaching. As a result, troopers started a chase.

Right away, the paramedics rushed three people including the suspect to a hospital with unknown injuries.
Finally, officers took the suspect driver in custody.

Vehicle Collision Results in Injuries
