On July 12 at 12:34 a.m., California Highway Patrol officers attempted to pull David John Calmere, 41, over for speeding on the 101 north of Salinas. Calmere, a guard at the Correctional Training Facility in Soledad, then led officers on a high-speed chase.
The six-mile chase ended when Calmere lost control of his Toyota Tundra and struck guard rail on Highway 101. He was ejected from his vehicle and died at the scene.
