Orange County Register

ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. — Police opened fire on a man inside a black car Tuesday morning, shortly after the man reportedly tried to drive away from the scene of a six-car wreck, witnesses and authorities said.

Authorities said the man who was shot by officers is the same driver who was driving at a high speed on the wrong side of Pacific Coast Highway just minutes before the crash at 8 a.m., near Pacific Coast Highway and St. Ann's Drive. Two other people were treated for minor injuries.
