While evading authorities, the driver passed through Vernon and other communities before ending up in Bell. The driver of the vehicle being pursued clipped the car of a person unrelated to the chase, causing his car to flip, bringing the pursuit to an end.

As the vehicle flipped through the air, it slammed into both an electrical pole and a large tree before coming to a stop on its roof.
