According to police documents, Montgomery was identified as the person behind the wheel of the pickup that crashed at the intersection of Flamingo Road and Valley View Boulevard. The arrest report stated two men in the bed of the pickup, Magdaleno and Cruz, were ejected in the crash.
Police said Montgomery had taken the truck in the Flamingo valet area while Magdaleno and Cruz were loading it. Cruz was in the bed of the truck when Montgomery fled, with the CHP officer running after it, police said.
Once the truck slowed, Magdaleno got into the bed of the vehicle and started identifying himself as an officer, police said.
Police said the truck was seen speeding through westbound Flamingo Road, blowing through red lights in the process. It wasn't until the crash that the truck came to a stop.
