1 killed, several injured when pursuit vehicle crashes, overturns in Buena Park

One person was killed and several others hospitalized when a vehicle being chased by police crashed into another car and overturned in Buena Park Monday night.

The crash occurred around 11:40 p.m. at La Palma Avenue and Knott Avenue following a short pursuit near Knott’s Berry Farm.

The chase began when officers identified a stolen black sedan at a McDonald’s restaurant on Beach Boulevard about a mile away.

A witness said that police surrounded the sedan, which was in the drive-thru lane, but the driver went over a curb to get out of line.

“The cop pit maneuvered his butt. Hit him in the back and he still kept going,” the witness identified as Stacy said.

The pursuit ended when the car sped through the La Palma and Knott intersection and hit a white Mercedes-Benz.

The Mercedes-Benz was left with major front-end damage while the stolen black vehicle flipped over and caught fire.

The Orange County Fire Authority was called to the scene and treated multiple patients.

Two people were extracted from the stolen vehicle, including one who was transported to a local hospital and one who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Two adults and two or three children suffered minor injuries in the Mercedes-Benz but were able to get out on their own before being taken to the hospital.

A fifth victim, a bystander with a bicycle was also injured and taken to a hospital in unknown condition.

The intersection was expected to remain closed until the late-morning hours for the investigation.

L.A. chapter of ASPCA responds to discovery of dead longhorn at fraternity house in Oklahoma

L.A. chapter of ASPCA responds to discovery of dead longhorn at fraternity house in Oklahoma

The Los Angeles chapter of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (spcaLA) is outraged over the “horrific” discovery of a dead longhorn in front of a fraternity house near the campus of Oklahoma State University. 

According to KTLA sister station KFOR, the carcass was found in front of the FarmHouse Fraternity in Stillwater, Oklahoma. 

The words “F**k FH” were scrawled on the cow’s side. 

A local police officer told KFOR that the longhorn appeared to have been dead for less than 24 hours upon its discovery, and it was unlikely that it was killed on off-campus fraternity house’s front lawn. 

Tire tracks on the lawn indicate that a truck or truck and trailer dumped the steer there, KFOR reported.

SpcaLA officials released a statement condemning the “horrific and unsettling” discovery and called for a thorough investigation by local authorities, the Oklahoma State University’s Office of Student Support and Conduct and the National Interfraternity Council. 

The dead longhorn does carry some significance, as OSU is set to take on the University of Texas (whose mascot is a longhorn steer) in Dallas on Saturday in the Big 12 championship, and some are speculating that the slaughtering of the steer is directly connected to the matchup. 

“Regardless, if this is because of a football game, “Texas Hate Week,” or something more nefarious, this is a criminal act,” said Madeline Bernstein, spcaLA President. “This behavior cannot be brushed aside.” 

KFOR obtained a statement from Oklahoma State University: 

“Oklahoma State University is appalled at the disturbing display of animal cruelty that occurred overnight at an off-campus location near a fraternity house. The Stillwater Police Department is investigating the incident, and the university’s Office of Student Support and Conduct also has initiated an investigation. 

Oklahoma State expects all students to adhere to university codes of conduct, and appropriate action will be taken based on the outcome of the investigation.”
