Murder/kidnapping/carjacking suspect Jesus Mercado and 19-year-old woman suffer critical injuries after single-car accident
Jesus Mercado caused a 19-year-old woman to crash her car into a tree, causing moderate injuries near South Garey Avenue and the Pomona Freeway, according to a recent article from the Daily Bulletin News.
On Saturday, November 25th, a 34-year-old male identified as Jesus Mercado, reportedly forced a 19-year-old woman to drive him in her car, speeding over 100 miles per hour. The silver 2006 BMW 528i sedan crashed into a tree, ejecting Mercado, who suffered critical injuries as a result.
According to the report, the 19-year-old woman suffered moderate injuries and was assisted by a nearby witness.
The report indicated that there was a scuffle over the control of the vehicle between the two occupants, and at times, the man would attempt to crash her vehicle into passing cars. The vehicle then crashed into a tree near the intersection of South Garey Avenue and West Mission Boulevard.
The man was then arrested by the authorities, under suspicion of murder, kidnapping, and carjacking.
Currently, this crash remains under the investigation by the Pomona Police.
Further details will be reported at a later time when the authorities have concluded the investigation.
