The driver, later identified as Salvador Ramirez-Vasquez, of Moreno Valley, failed to stop and a vehicle pursuit ensued. Ramirez-Vasquez lost control of his vehicle and crashed on Alessandro Blvd, just east of Day Street.  Members of the Moreno Valley Station Traffic Team responded and investigated this collision. Ramirez-Vasquez was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
