A high-speed police pursuit ended Thursday night, thankfully without any injuries, said California Highway Patrol. The chase went through parts of Alameda County, and began when a deputy attempted to pull over a BMW but the driver fled from police. The driver then stopped his car and gave up the pursuit in Livermore.
“He was on the phone with someone during the pursuit, and maybe the person who he was talking to convinced him to stop,” authorities said. “But at this point, we really don’t know. We’re just really glad that it came to an end without anybody getting hurt.” During the chase, the BMW reached speeds up to 120mph. As the suspect drove through Hayward, he went through northbound I-238 into San Leandro and back onto I-880.
According to news reports, the CHP took over the chase when the speeder reached Oakland. As a Oakland personal injury lawyer, I’m glad that nobody else was hurt in this crash. If you or a loved one were harmed in an auto accident caused by negligence, discuss your case with a personal injury lawyer who can assess your case, evaluate a claim, and help protect your rights.
