The incident began around 1:20 a.m. when 26-year-old Eliseo Ixchopcalel rear-ended a black and white police cruiser with his vehicle at Hobart Boulevard and Martin Luther King Boulevard. When officers approached Ixchopcalel’s vehicle, he fled northbound on Western Avenue. Officers initiated a pursuit for reckless driver.

When the suspect attempted to negotiate a southbound turn near Buckingham Road, his vehicle ran off the street and into the northeast corner of a residence, crashing into the home’s bedroom and trapping two elderly victims under his vehicle.

“And then I saw the car inside my parents’ bedroom,” she said. “I saw my dad but I couldn’t find my mom.”
