Driver who ‘stole hearse with DEAD BODY still inside’ crashes after wild LAPD police chase – The Sun

POLICE say someone stole a hearse yesterday — with a dead body still inside — leading police on a chase through Los Angeles that ultimately ended in a crash.

The black Lincoln Navigator was parked outside a Greek Orthodox church, with the engine on and keys inside, in Pasadena, California around 8pm.

The driver of the hearse was dropping off a body inside the church, while another was left inside the SUV — and that’s when the hearse was stolen.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office pleaded on Twitter: “Out of all the bad decisions you have made, at least make one good one & bring back the deceased person & casket inside the Navigator.”

Hours later, sometime early Thursday morning, a driver reported seeing the vehicle, which started a police chase, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The pursuit ended on the southbound 110 Freeway when the hearse crashed into another vehicle.

The sheriff’s office said a casket with a deceased person inside was found inside the vehicle and said a male suspect was taken into custody after the crash.

The remains were said to be undisturbed during the ordeal.

“Huge THANK YOU to the good samaritan that called law enforcement when they saw the stolen vehicle,” officials tweeted.

“We also want to send condolences to the family members of the deceased person, who had to deal with this tragedy.”
