A 20-year-old man and a 15-year-old juvenile died and a 13-year-old juvenile was in critical condition after they crashed their vehicle while fleeing after allegedly committing an armed robbery, according to the San Bernardino Police Department.
On July 3 at about 9:47 p.m., a silver Dodge was involved in an armed robbery at a business in the 700 block of West 2nd Street in San Bernardino. The Dodge was observed to be occupied by three males.
Officers arrived and located the suspects fleeing the area in that Dodge. As the uniformed officers attempted to stop that Dodge, the vehicle failed to yield to their emergency lights and sirens, and a vehicle pursuit ensued, police said.
The Dodge traveled at extremely high rates of speed and the driver lost control in the 1900 block of West 5th Street. The vehicle struck a concrete barrier and then a concrete flood channel.
Medical aid was summoned to the collision scene.
Michael Mendoza Levario, 20, was identified as the deceased driver. The two passengers have not been identified.
