Man Arrested, Suspected of Running from Police

OAKLAND (BCN) — The California Highway Patrol detained a man suspected of fleeing
CHP officers at over 100 mph on Interstate Highway 580 in Oakland Wednesday morning, a CHP officer said.
The chase started on westbound I-580 near Grand Avenue when CHP
officers tried to pull over a driver in a silver Honda Civic, CHP Officer
Sean Wilkenfeld said.
The driver took off, driving away at over 100 mph. The CHP
officers tried to catch up with the fleeing driver, but the driver apparently
exited the highway, stopped the car and the three occupants ran.
CHP officers found the Civic abandoned near the corner of 37th and
West streets near the Emeryville border at about 11 a.m., Wilkenfeld said.
A man suspected to be the car’s driver was detained nearby. Two
passengers were not located after a search of the neighborhood.
CHP investigators have not determined why the driver fled the
officers and whether the man detained will be arrested. The car they were
driving was not reported stolen, Wilkenfeld said.
The car’s two passengers remain at large. Wilkenfeld could not
provide a description of them as of late this morning.
