A deputy sheriff assigned to the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station observed a 2005 Nissan 300ZX stopped in the middle of an intersection Friday at Railroad Avenue and 8th street, Newhall.
The driver, a 30-year-old white male, sped away at a high rate of speed after the sheriff’s deputy attempted to make contact. The vehicle, which was traveling southbound on Newhall Avenue, entered the driveway of a Chevron Gas Station located at 20500 Newhall Avenue in Newhall near Sierra Highway.
The suspect’s car collided into four gas pumps, dislodging them from their bases. The collision was responsible for damaging a support pillar causing the metal overhang to fall to the ground.
