Carjacking Ends in Fatal Collision

Los Angeles: Two Los Angeles teenage boys are in custody after leading Sheriff's Deputies on a short pursuit that ended in a violent collision, killing an innocent man.

On June 27, 2007, at about 6:50 a.m., Deputies from Lennox Sheriff's Station began following a Toyota Camry that was reported stolen out of the Hollywood area. The pursuit began on Century Boulevard near Vermont Avenue. After a brief chase the pursuing Deputies backed off and canceled their pursuit.

The driver of the Camry, a 16-year-old juvenile, attempting to flee from the Deputies, lost control of the car and veered into oncoming traffic, colliding head-on into a Toyota pick-up truck being driven by Miguel Falcon Castro of Los Angeles. The impact killed Mr. Castro and resulted in a five-car pile-up.

The driver of the Camry, and his 16-year-old passenger, were both transported to a local hospital with moderate injuries. The driver was subsequently arrested for Vehicular Manslaughter and his passenger was arrested for Carjacking. No other injuries were reported.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Rodney Jones at South Traffic Division, 323-290-6364. On weekends and holidays please call the toll-free number at
1-877- LAWFULL (529-3855).
