Police chase ends with traffic fatality in Claremont

Police chase of burglary suspects came to a grisly end in Claremont on Sunday evening.  

The pursuit began around 5:20 p.m. at a Target in Montclair, where a man was spotted leaving the store with two large TVs, according to a police statement. Officers followed in pursuit as the man got into a 2004 green Honda Accord driven by a female. The driver headed onto the 10 freeway heading west at a high rate of speed. The pursuit came to an end off the Indian Hill Boulevard exit when the Honda collided with three other vehicles on the exit ramp. The male robbery suspect was ejected from the backseat of the car and pronounced dead at the scene. The Indian Hill westbound exit was temporarily closed, but has since been reopened.
