Police say they then allegedly saw him continue eastbound on March Lane in the westbound lanes. An unmarked patrol vehicle used its sirens to try to pull the driver over, but he did not stop until he was involved in a major accident at the intersection of March and West lanes.

The suspect and three other people were transported to area hospitals with minor injuries.

Romero is a documented gang associate, parolee, has a history of using PCP and is known to be violent.
