Motor Vehicle Accident Leads To Manhunt And Arrest

Pinnacles National Monument

National Park News

On the night of March 18th, rangers investigated a report that a car had gone over the edge of Bear Gulch Road on the east side of the park. An SUV was found below the road – unoccupied, with its airbags deployed. The SUV struck a pine tree on the hillside, which kept it from landing in a creek bed 100 feet below. The passenger was found in the campground and taken by ambulance to a medical facility. Investigation revealed that the driver was fleeing from rangers to avoid prosecution and that he was injured. Search dogs were called in, along with a San Benito County canine unit. The driver was eventually found as friends attempted to drive him to the hospital. He was arrested and has been charged with a number of offenses, including felony DUI.
