Suspect in Stolen Truck Involved in Deadly Crash on March Lane in Stockton

STOCKTON -- The Stockton Police Department is investigating  a deadly crash on March Lane and Quail Lakes Drive.

The incident began around 3 a.m. Friday when California Highway Patrol officers attempted to stop a Chevy Silverado truck for speeding on I-5.

The driver then got off the freeway at March Lane and led officers on a pursuit. CHP said the suspect ran a red light and struck three other vehicles at the Quail Lakes Drive intersection.

One driver sustained minor injuries, another driver is hospitalized with major injuries and a third driver died.

Authorities say only one person was inside each car involved in the crash.

Investigators are still trying to figure out exactly where the other three cars were in the intersection and how fast the driver was going at the time of the crash.

Authorities have only identified the suspect as a 17-year-old male. The truck he was driving was stolen.

He is in custody at the hospital but investigators are unsure what charges he will face.

Federico Pizano, while at the scene of the crash, told FOX40 he is the owner of the stolen truck.

He said the truck was stolen approximately 15 minutes before the crash.

Pizano said he spoke with authorities and provided them with surveillance footage of the theft.

Harrison, 36, was killed in a crash in Stockton wen his vehicle was struck by a pickup truck fleeing police.

He said his security cameras show another car involved in the theft of his truck. He's hoping his neighbors' cameras will have a better view of the other people involved.

The driver who died has been identified as 36-year-old Christian Harrison. He was on his way to work and was only a few blocks away from his home when the crash occurred.

Harrison described himself on his Facebook page as "just a humble person loving life and family and friends."
