After couple pursues man's stolen car, suspected car thief is killed in crash

Jose Medina-Razo heard the sound of his car's engine starting Thursday in the predawn darkness.

As he ran out of his girlfriend's home in Loma Linda, the teenager saw his white 1994 Acura Integra being driven away, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said.

Medina-Razo, 19, and his girlfriend jumped into her light-blue 2006 Honda Pilot and took off after the stolen Integra. 

The girlfriend called police as they gave chase, but the pursuit didn't last long.
