Driver pinned between CAR & PILLAR    


According to San Bernardino County Sheriff Coroner,  Sunday March 1, 2015, at 11:38 A.M., San Bernardino Police Officers responded to the 100 block of west Highland Avenue in San Bernardino, to a reported attempted vehicle theft. When officers arrived, they found a 33 year-old male subject who had been pinned between a Honda sedan and a cement-filled steel pillar at the location, unresponsive. 

Paramedics from the San Bernardino Fire Department arrived and pronounced the subject dead at 11:44 A.M. It appeared that the subject was attempting to get away from the assailants who attempted to take the car when he became pinned.  The name of the decedent will be released once positive identification has been established. An autopsy will be conducted later this week to determine the cause of death.  The San Bernardino Police Department Homicide Unit is investigating the circumstances related to the death.
