The man who died in last night's strange weedjack-turned-police chase -- see here and here -- was a local, reports acting coroner Frank Jager. He was 21-year-old David Fields, whose city of residence is unavailable at this time. He was definitely from Humboldt County, though.
The other suspect in the case, a 19-year-old man from Antioch, has been transported to Redding for medical attention, Jager said. He is expected to survive.
