The crash was reported in the 14900 block of Holt Avenue, near Newport Avenue, around 12:14 AM.

Video from the scene shows a vehicle that collided with a utility box and was surrounded by police vehicles on a mound of grass outside an urgent care.

An occupant from the vehicle, believed to be the driver, was seen in handcuffs being evaluated by firefighters before being taken away by officers.

A witness said they heard sirens and a boom and speculated that the incident was the result of a police pursuit although a police spokesperson could not be reached to provide further information prior to publication.

Officers at the scene said the area surrounding the incident was a crime scene but later backtracked claiming that the police tape was to ensure “safety” due to exposed wires.
