Prior to the collision, police officers attempted to make a traffic stop at around 8:15 p.m. near First Street and Gettysburg Avenue. However, the suspect did not cooperate and a short high-speed pursuit began and was called off by a supervisor as the vehicle was traveling westbound on Santa Ana Avenue.
