A suspected DUI driver trying to escape deputies crashed into another vehicle early Friday, June 28, in Upland, killing four people and sending a 13-year-old boy to the hospital, authorities said.

All five were in the black 2018 Hyundai, which around 1:50 a.m. deputies attempted to pull over near Foothill Boulevard and Archibald Avenue in Rancho Cucamonga.

The Ontario Police Department’s Aviation Unit assisted in the pursuit.

The driver led deputies on a six-minute chase at high speeds before crashing into a white 2010 Ford Mustang at 16th Street and Mountain Avenue and then a pole, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said.

The Hyundai split into three sections and caught fire.

The two Ontario residents in the Mustang, a 35-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman, were hospitalized as a precaution.

All five people in the Hyundai, described only as males, were ejected.

The San Bernardino County Coroner’s Office identified 16-year-old Jesus Guillen as one of the people killed. As of 5 p.m. Friday, June 28, no other people had been identified.

Deputies later determined that the Hyundai had been reported stolen out of Fontana.  A loaded firearm was found on one of the dead occupants, the department said.

The 13-year-old boy was expected to survive, the Sheriff’s Department said.

The speed the Hyundai reached, and whether the pursuit was called off at any point were under investigation, sheriff’s spokesperson Gloria Huerta said.

The Sheriff’s Department will investigate the pursuit, and Upland police will handle the collision investigation.
