APPLE VALLEY, Calif. — (VVNG.com) — At least one person was taken into custody following a wild high-speed pursuit that ended on the southbound I-15 freeway here Thursday.
At about 9:25 am. Victor Valley News Group member Jennifer Guerrero posted that she had just seen a high-speed pursuit heading westbound on Highway 18, near Kiowa Road in Apple Valley.
Other group members, joined the conversation and continued to share updates on the pursuit involving a white lifted pick-up truck and the recklessness of the driver. “He was driving in oncoming traffic and almost hit a few of us,” stated Lori Kushaney.
With no regard for public safety, the suspect continued to evade pursuing deputies at a high-rate of speed and the chase continued into Victorville city where the suspect entered the SB-15 freeway from the D Street on-ramp.
