  • Chase suspect dies of apparent poisoning on 101 Freeway in Ventura

"It appears that he poisoned himself somehow", Denharder said of the suspect. That's what happened Wednesday, according to the California Highway Patrol. The incident began when a check of a vehicle in Oxnard came back with information that the auto belonged to a rape suspect, believed to be a 35-year-old man from Camarillo, CHP officials said. The substance that the suspect ingested was tested by the Ventura Fire Department's Hazmat team and determined to be a mixture of sodium chloride and potassium cyanide, Terry said. The man was pronounced dead at the scene. CHP officials said information came back on the vehicle belonging to a rape suspect.

After about six miles, the vehicle crossed lanes and struck a center divider on Interstate 101 in Ventura. The vehicle came to a stop in the center median, though CHP officers told KABC it's unclear if the suspect crashed of stopped the vehicle on his own.

Los Angeles police contacted the California Highway Patrol at around 7.30am to tell them undercover officers were covering Hanks, who was driving in a black Nissan Versa.

"He drank something he had concocted", Denharder said. Then, the man's vehicle appeared to drift across all lanes of the northbound 101 Freeway until it ended up in the center divider.

Investigators found a dead man, 35, inside the vehicle. He was not identified.

A man suspected of raping a 14-year-old he lured to a motel on social media was fleeing from police on a Southern California freeway Wednesday when he drank cyanide as he drove and killed himself, authorities said.

CHP said U.S. 101 North will remain closed down while the Los Angeles Police Department investigates.
