Suspect Fatally Crashes Stolen Lamborghini During Los Angeles Police Pursuit

LOS ANGELES – A high-speed chase through Los Angeles has ended tragically with a fatality after a man crashed a Lamborghini. The incident unfolded in the early hours of April 6, resulting in a brief but intense pursuit by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD).

At approximately 5 a.m., LAPD officers attempted to pull over 51-year-old Elliott Dugan in the San Fernando Valley area, near the 18500 block of Sherman Way. Authorities questioned Dugan’s possession of the Lamborghini Huracán, but Dugan denied that the vehicle was stolen and refused to comply with officers’ requests to exit the car.

Following the standoff, Dugan fled the scene in the luxurious sports car, instigating a police pursuit. Reports from LAPD suggest that Dugan propelled the Lamborghini to speeds exceeding 100 mph. The chase was cut short when Dugan lost control of the vehicle, striking a center median. The car continued to careen into multiple trees near the intersection of Vanalden Avenue and Sherman Way in the Reseda neighborhood.

The extent of the crash ejected Dugan from the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene. According to police reports, the pursuit lasted only moments before ending in the disastrous collision. Surrounding parked vehicles suffered collateral damage from debris dispersed by the impact of the crash.
