A 39-year-old man who evaded Arroyo Grande police during a high-speed chase on Tuesday was hit by a truck while fleeing San Luis Obispo police on Wednesday.
San Luis Obispo police officers discovered Arroyo Grande resident Cameron Hein walking on Los Osos Valley Road near Highway 101. Hein then hid in some bushes before attempting to flee by running across the highway.
A truck hit Hein who was then transported to Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center and placed in the ICU unit. He is currently in stable condition with multiple broken bones.
Hein, who a relative said suffers from mental health issues, was under an arrest warrant because of a failure to follow the conditions of his probation including checking in with his probation officer and an alleged car theft. Nevertheless, the owner of the alleged stolen vehicle said they lent the car to Hein and that the allegations of theft are unfounded.
On Tuesday, Arroyo Grande police officers followed Hein from his home and attempted to pull him over in his truck. Hein then sped away leading officers through Arroyo Grande, Grover Beach and Pismo Beach before officers terminated their pursuit on Northbound Highway 101 at Spyglass Drive.
