Newport Beach Police Arrest Two Men After Short Pursuit Ended In Huntington Beach

Newport Beach Police were involved in a high-speed pursuit that occurred on the Pacific Coast Highway late Sunday, which led to a car accident in the Orange County area.  Newport Beach Police Department spokeswoman Jennifer Manzella stated that the chase started when a Newport Beach officer attempted to pull over a speeding car with no headlights around 11 p.m. near Walnut Street.  The driver of the gray Chevrolet sedan was identified as 39-year-old Louis Holt of Los Angeles.  Apparently when the officer tried to pull Holt over, he slowed down but did not stop until he was three miles from the Huntington Beach entrance bridge.  As the officer approached the Chevrolet he could see that the car was running, but there was no key in the ignition.  When Holt was ordered to get out of the car, he sped away even with pleas from a female passenger in the backseat of the car asking him to stop.

Police pursued Holt as he was traveling at speeds more than 100 mph down Pacific Coast Highway before colliding with a light pole on First Street.  Once the car came to a final stop, Holt and 26-year-old driver side passenger Forrest Green of Los Angeles fled on foot but were quickly tackled by Huntington Beach Police officers.  Officers also suspected that the vehicle Holt was driving was stolen.

Upon being detained, Holt stated that he was injured and was transported to a local medical center before he was arrested on charges of suspicion of driving while high on drugs, resisting arrest, kidnapping (since he took the woman in the backseat on the pursuit with her consent), and possession of a methamphetamine pipe.  The driver side passenger Forrest Green was charged with suspicion of resisting arrest and for an outstanding warrant.

Police concluded that the car was not stolen and belonged to one of the passengers after they conducted a full investigation.  Luckily, there were no fatalities this time, but it is vital that if you are injured or involved in an automotive accident in Newport Beach to contact the authorities and a car accident lawyer in Newport Beach immediately.  Unfortunately, auto accident

Fatal Accident In Skagit County Injures Two and Leaves Three Dead

Washington Highway Patrol received reports of a car accident early Friday morning on Highway 20 near Sedro-Woolley.  The accident occurred around 5 a.m. close to the Hamilton Cemetery Road East, when a 1998 Audi A4 was traveling Eastbound on Highway 20 crossed the center line and struck a Ford Fusion carrying 65-year-old Fredrick Brand of Concrete, head-on, killing him immediately.

Washington State Patrol Tropper Mark Francis stated that two other young female passengers were pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.  They were identified as 23-year-old Nicole Washington of Sedro-Woolley and 21-year-old Megan Brown of Bellingham.

The driver of the Audi was identified as 19-year-old Alfredo Navarro of Mount Vernon, and his driver side passenger, 22-year-old Quinnton Baxtor of Burlington, were both transported via airlift to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for severe injuries they had sustained in the accident.

Highway Patrol is investigating the scene of the accident trying to figure out what cause the deadly accident.  Some believe that alcohol could have played a major factor.  WHP closed off Highway 20 for hours while the investigation was underway.

After being transported to Harborview Medical Center, Alfredo was to be arrested but was able to be checked out of the hospital by his parents.  Police stated that because of how severe Navarro’s injuries were, there did think he would be released.  Washington Highway Patrol had placed a $1,000,000 warrant after Navarro had checked out, and they were unable to contact him.  After Navarro’s blood work had been processed, prosecutors stated that because he was high on marijuana and had a very high blood-alcohol content level, he was responsible for the accident that took place that morning.

Authorities stated that this wasn’t Navarro’s first run in with the law.  In 2012, he was arrested for DUI and eluding police.  He is now facing criminal charges of three counts of vehicular homicide and one count of vehicular assault. Car accidents are one of the leading causes of death in the United States.  If you or a loved on have been injured in a DUI-related accident, contact our Dellino Law Group in Seattle.
