PALMDALE, California (October 18, 2016) – According to an article by AV Times, several parties sustained injuries after a man allegedly high on drugs caused a traffic collision at 47th Street East and Avenue R.
On Monday night, 32-year-old Ricky Parsons Jr. was taken into custody for multiple charges, including felony reckless fleeing from a peace officer, driving a stolen vehicle and driving while under the influence of a drug.
As per the article, the incident started at about 9:36 p.m. when an officer attempted to stop a 1997 Honda on Rancho Vista Boulevard at 15th Street East. The Honda failed to yield and a high-speed chase was launched.
