A man convicted of fleeing from police and causing the death of another person in a Murrieta traffic accident was sentenced to eight years in state prison, police said today.

Harvey Lacy, 20, accepted a plea deal and on Oct. 11 was convicted of felony evasion causing injury or death and three counts of commercial burglary. He sped away when Murrieta Police attempted to check on what they believed to be a suspicious vehicle backing into a parking stall at a closed business at 25195 Madison Ave. about 2 a.m. on Aug. 5.

The suspect committed several vehicle violations while exceeding speeds of 80 mph on Madison Avenue, according to a news release. Lacy lost control and rolled the vehicle at the intersection of Madison Avenue and Elm Street. Lacy and a passenger, 24-year-old Joshua Newman, were ejected from the vehicle.

Newman was pronounced dead at the scene. Lacy was transported to Inland Valley Hospital Trauma Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries before being arrested and booked at the Cois Byrd Detention Facility.
