  1. In reality, it was a botched robbery pursuit. I was on the corner of Huntington and Poplar waiting to make a right onto Poplar. I saw the accident happen in slow motion. I was appalled to see the police officers chase the suspect and not think twice to check on the victims in their cars. The life of one young man was lost.

    • Alba, I agree with Peter..there were plenty of human beings out there capable of helping, including you. As for me, I’d rather the person who caused the accident be caught.

  2. My cousin knows him they played soccer together they are called Tijuana

  3. I saw the from my apartment across the long way, The gangbanger crawled out of his car and ran around the small construction site, before jumping a fence into some nice asian’s home.
    As for the police not checking on people, well their were plenty of normal people trying to help the best they could, the police could not do any better. Only paramedics could.
    Im glad the guy was caught in the end, hope he gets what is coming to him.
    That intersection is pretty bad, pretty blind sometimes too

    • Hello my name is Brenda, the person that died in this accident was my cousin. Julio was a good person and we are trying to make things right. If you were there when the accident happened, do you think you can tell me and my aunt, Julio’s mom, what you saw?

  4. I know the individual who caused all this, unfortunately he was a well known gangbanger and drug user. Rip Julio you had a promising future taken away by ‘gangs’
