VICTORVILLE – An 18-year-old Victorville led deputies on a pursuit following an attempted traffic stop for a vehicle code violation authorities said.
On Tuesday, August 7, 2018, at around 9:20 p.m., deputies from the Victorville station attempted to stop a vehicle driven by Francisco Molina in the area of Hook Boulevard and Arlette Drive. Molina pulled over and the deputy requested identification from the driver, who said that he did not have it with him. The deputy asked for him to step out of the vehicle, Molina went into drive and fled. The deputy followed Molina, in the marked patrol unit with his emergency lights and siren activated. Nearby deputies were informed of the pursuit and set up spike strips on Amargosa Road. The pursuit continued eastbound on Bear Valley Road until the vehicle became fully disabled near Apatite Avenue.
Officials said that Molina failed to yield at multiple signals and stop signs, driving excessive speeds, even striking a vehicle at one point. Molina, who was learned to not have a valid driver’s license, was booked into the High Desert Detention Center for Evading a Peace Officer. The case was forwarded to the District Attorney’s office for consideration of additional charges against Molina.
