Rachel Fernandez filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court on behalf of herself and her three brothers – Jeremy, 15, and Donovan, 13, and Ryan, 11 – against the state as well as Elba Jimenez, the 38-year-old Upland resident being chased, and the owners of Danny’s Taco Truck. All of the plaintiffs were the children of 38-year-old Claudia Fernandez. The suit seeks unspecified damages. A CHP spokesperson did not immediately return a call for comment. The agency previously stated that one of its officers began pursuing Jimenez in the belief she was intoxicated about 1:20 p.m. last June 16 on the eastbound Santa Monica (10) Freeway near the Convention Center. The officer followed the 2005 Toyota Camry – being driven at speeds up to 100 mph – onto the northbound Golden State (5) Freeway, where the officer tried to make a stop, the CHP stated.
