Guadalupe police officers performed lifesaving measures, but the woman died from her injuries at the crash site. The name of the woman is not currently available pending notification of her next of kin.

CHP officers are conducting an investigation into the fatal crash.

And the Darwin award winner today is…..

We need to get tough on people that evade arrest and refuse to pull over…automatic 15 years in prison for evading arrest….aside from whatever else you are charged with…if we had tough laws like this maybe this woman would be alive today….

IF new strict laws work the same way strict gun laws currently keep guns away from criminals we may never see the change you hope for.

Yes it is sad because of her poor decision. Think how sad it could have been if she would of hit and killed an innocent person because of her lack of responsibility to simply pull over.

How sad the CHP officer had to witness that.
