Police Chase at Calabash and Slover Avenues in Fontana Kills Man and Woman
FONTANA, CA (January 4, 2022) – Two people were killed in a police chase at Calabash Avenue and Slover Avenue in Fontana Wednesday last week.
Around 4:21 a.m. on December 29, Fontana Police Department officers received a report of a hazard on the railroad tracks.
A train conductor saw a maroon van parked along a stopped train that initially appeared stuck. Union Pacific police had previously notified officers about multiple reports of cargo thefts in that area over the past few months.
Officers arrived to find a possible cargo theft in progress from one of the train’s boxcars. When officers attempted to make contact, the people in the van fled, and a pursuit ensued.
The pursuit ended in Ontario after the driver lost control and the van crashed in the area of Carnegie Avenue and Jurupa Avenue.
The San Bernardino County Fire Department responded to the scene and declared the two occupants of the vehicle deceased. They were only described as a man and a woman.
Officers located evidence of a cargo theft inside the suspects’ vehicle.
At this time, the incident is still under investigation.
