Driver sought after brief pursuit, crash in Pasadena

PASADENA >> Police are seeking a man who they say rammed another car while fleeing from officers on Friday.
The incident began about 7:20 p.m. when an officer tried to pull over a car for a traffic violation at Lake Avenue and Boylston Street, according to Pasadena police Lt. William Grisafe.
The driver fled from police, he said. He rammed another occupied car as he fled through the parking lot of a business in the 700 block of Lake Avenue in what was believed to be an intentional act.
Police said the driver abandoned the crashed car and ran, leaving a woman who was riding as a passenger behind in the car.
Officers searched the area but did not find the driver, Grisafe said. They did, however, recover a handgun that had been discarded in the area.
A detailed description of the driver was not available as police continued working to determine his identity on Saturday.
The passenger was arrested due to outstanding warrants, he added.
The man driving the car struck by the fleeing suspect’s vehicle complained of pain but did not appear to suffer any serious injuries, Grisafe said.
