LOS ANGELES —

Los Angeles police are searching for a driver who caused a deadly eight-vehicle pileup while apparently fleeing after a drive-by shooting.

Officer Lyle Knight says someone opened fire at a carwash fundraiser in South Los Angeles shortly before 8 p.m. Tuesday.

Nobody was hit and the silver Pontiac took off. Witnesses or victims began chasing it in a Dodge Charger.

Minutes later, both cars ran a red light and slammed into cross-traffic. The Pontiac hit a Saturn, killing 39-year-old Jose Cuevas, of Downey.

The Charger hit a pickup truck, which struck parked cars and a bicyclist. The Los Angeles Times ( http://lat.ms/14UQAuG) says the Charger's driver is in critical condition.

Police say five other people received minor injuries.

The Pontiac's driver is being sought.
