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.
