VIDEO: 2 detained after police chase leads to 3-car crash in Berkeley, standoff

 

 

BERKELEY (KRON) — A police chase has led to a three-car crash in Berkeley on Wednesday night, according to KRON4’s Ella Sogomonian.

The incident happened on College and Ashby in Berkeley. The chase started in Oakland.

One person had been detained shortly after the crash. A second suspect was reportedly shooting at officers from the roof of a nearby building, Ella said.

He has also been detained.

The suspect on the roof was seen smoking a cigarette.

The incident appears to be related to an earlier incident in Oakland in which a suspect fled from Oakland police after ramming their vehicle into a police patrol car.

That incident occurred at about 6:50 p.m., near 14th and Harrison streets, according to an Oakland police dispatcher. The officer suffered minor injuries.

It was not immediately clear what caused the pursuit.

The suspect then fled in their vehicle and apparently ended up in Berkeley, near Ashby and College avenues.

Residents are still being asked to avoid the area even though the situation has been resolved.
