Written by 

A Multi-Agency Protocol Team is investigating a traffic accident at Plymouth Road and Bristol Avenue in Stockton which left one occupant of the vehicle dead and another in serious condition. The accident happened overnight when Stockton Police Officers attempted to pull this vehicle over for driving at a high rate of speed. The vehicle did not pull over and a vehicle pursuit ensued. During the pursuit, Officers terminated the chase and seconds later the suspect vehicle struck a utility pole.


On September 9, 2012, at 12:28 am, Stockton Police Officers attempted to make a traffic stop near El Dorado Street and the Crosstown Freeway on a 1999 Gold Chevy Malibu for driving at a high rate of speed. The driver failed to pull over and led Officers on a two minute pursuit north bound on Interstate 5 at speeds up to 80 mph. When the suspect vehicle exited Interstate 5 at the Country Club Blvd exit the pursuit was terminated. The suspect vehicle continued northbound on Plymouth Road and seconds later collided with a pole near the intersection of Plymouth Road and Bristol Avenue. The driver, a 53 year old male, was pronounced deceased at the scene. The passenger, an unknown male, was medi-flighted to a Modesto Hospital in critical condition. A multi-agency protocol investigation was invoked with investigators from the Stockton Police Department, California Highway Patrol, San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office, and San Joaquin County District Attorney’s Office.
