Russell Pearce's Son, MCSO Deputy Sean Pearce, Clocked at 81 MPH, Seconds Before Fatal Crash

MCSO Deputy Sean Pearce was clocked at 81 mph just seconds before a December 16 crash that killed Glendale resident John Edward Harding, 63.

Pearce was traveling north on North 59th Avenue a little after 1 p.m. in an unmarked black Chevy Tahoe when he collided with Harding's Nissan Cube, as it was turning south onto North 59th Avenue from West Hayward Avenue.

According to a report released Monday by the Glendale Police Department, the Tahoe's event data recorder (kind of a black box for automobiles) found the vehicle's maximum speed prior to the crash to be 81 mph.
