Orange police have heard a lot of excuses from speeding drivers. But the one they got from Allie Mallad of Riverside after he sped away from them on the Costa Mesa Freeway on Sunday morning happened to be true. When an Orange police officer tried to pull over Mallad, 43, for speeding at 10:40 a.m., he refused to stop, Lt. John Higley said. Instead, Higley said, Mallad used his cell phone to call 911.

A rare disciplinary action by state and industry inspectors has put a Riverside hospital on the brink of failure by driving away funding, staff and patients. Inspectors cited dramatic deficiencies in training, medical procedures and other matters at Parkview Community Hospital earlier this year. The result: Several Parkview departments, including the emergency room, are closed--and by Friday occupancy had dwindled to 27 of 193 beds.
