Driver Fleeing Police Pursuit Crashes into Apartment Building on Wiley Burke Avenue in Downey

DOWNEY, CA (December 31, 2019) – A driver fleeing police pursuit crashed early in the morning in Downey, smashing into an apartment building. The December 30 incident occurred on Wiley Burke Avenue close to where Florence Avenue is located.

Officers arrested the person who was driving the vehicle on suspicion of DUI. The driver was identified only as a man. His name, age, and city of residence have not been reported.
