LONG BEACH (CBSLA) — A woman and five of her dogs were killed after a suspect crashed at the end of a police pursuit in Long Beach on Tuesday.
The pursuit began at about 11:30 a.m. around Broadway and Alamitos and ended in the violent crash at Third and Temple.
Police say the suspect, Javier Oliverez, 43, is a local gang member and was hospitalized in unknown condition.
The vehicle was reported stolen the night before so Long Beach police attempted to stop the driver before the pursuit began.
The woman was identified by her family as Jessica Bingaman. She was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Out of Bingaman’s six dogs, only one survived.
Jessie, as she went by, was a professional dog walker and was reportedly heading to a dog park when the crash happened. Bingaman leaves behind a 10-year-old daughter.
Oliverez was booked on felony DUI, manslaughter and evading police.
