LA shooting, chase end in deadly crash

LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles police are searching for a driver who caused a deadly eight-vehicle pileup while apparently fleeing after a drive-by shooting.

Officer Lyle Knight said someone opened fire at a carwash fundraiser in South Los Angeles shortly before 8 p.m. Tuesday.

Nobody was hit and the silver Pontiac took off. Witnesses or victims began chasing it in a Dodge Charger.

Minutes later, both cars ran a red light and slammed into cross-traffic. The Pontiac hit a Saturn, killing 39-year-old Jose Cuevas, of Downey.
