On 3-28-2015 at 11:17am, deputies from the Sheriff's Pixley Substation observed an extended cab Chevy truck traveling south on Church Road in Earlimart. The vehicle ran the stop sign at Church and Sierra. Deputies attempted to make a traffic stop, but the suspect fled south on Church. This resulted in a pursuit which led out of town to the area of Avenue 48 and Road 144. Speeds reached 80 mph and the pursuit ended at Avenue 40 and Road 168 when the deputy terminated it due to dusty conditions and losing visual of the suspect vehicle.
