On Aug. 15, a suspect was killed in a collision in Parkland while fleeing from deputies in a stolen vehicle.

At 2:45 p.m., deputies spotted a stolen Saturn sedan in Parkland and attempted to conduct a traffic stop. The driver fled eastbound on 121st St. E. and the deputies lost sight of the car.

Two minutes later, the suspect ran a stop sign and clipped a vintage Mustang at the intersection of 121st St. E. and Golden Given Rd E., causing the suspect’s vehicle to flip. The 31-year-old suspect was killed instantly.

The 45-year-old driver of the Mustang was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. There were no passengers in either vehicle.

Inside the suspect’s vehicle and around the scene, deputies located $500 worth of counterfeit bills.

The suspect was a known counterfeiter. He had an extensive criminal history including convictions for assault, theft, eluding police and drug possession. He was also on probation, had felony and misdemeanor warrants, and was classified as a high-violent offender.
