A pursuit came to a deadly end in Adelanto when the suspect leaped into the road and was hit by a big rig. It happened Wednesday on state Route 18, 100 yards east of Baldy Mesa Road.

The San Bernardino Sheriff's Department said it was pursuing a suspect originally wanted for not reporting to his parole officer.

The driver, Benjamin Ramsdell of Baldy Mesa, took off, but then suddenly stopped, got out of the car and leaped into the road. He was hit by a big rig and didn't survive.

The semi-driver wasn't hurt.
