High-Speed Chase Ends with a Crash in Walnut Creek

By Kelly Balamuth on July 23, 2015

Shortly before 10 pm on July 16th, law enforcement authorities in the city of San Lorenzo attempted to make a routine traffic stop of a Land Rover with two men inside. As reported by KPIX 5, the driver failed to yield on Hesperian Boulevard and Grant Avenue, beginning a chase that continued onto Interstate 680. The SUV led law enforcement at speeds of up to 100 mph at times, with the California Patrol Highway taking up the pursuit. The chase ended in Walnut Creek where the SUV sideswiped two cars and slammed into a parked vehicle near the intersection of North Main and Pine streets, shutting down North Main Street for more than two hours.

The two men were arrested on suspicion of evading law enforcement officers and for outstanding warrants. The officers also found items in the SUV that were previously reported stolen, including an officer’s belt, radio, flashlight and more. An investigation into their possible involvement in other crimes is ongoing.

It’s quite fortunate there were no pedestrian injuries during this high speed chase through the East Bay. If you have been seriously injured using a crosswalk or simply crossing the street, you may be entitled to a personal injury claim.
