On Wednesday, February 4, 2014 at 6:05 AM, a vehicle was stolen from the driveway of a residence on Bonita Avenue in Antioch. The vehicle had been left running in the driveway while the owner was inside the residence. Shortly after the vehicle had been reported stolen, an Antioch patrol officer located the stolen vehicle being driven on A Street in Antioch.
The officer attempted a traffic stop on the stolen vehicle and the driver refused to stop. Officers pursued the stolen vehicle onto westbound Highway 4 from A Street. The driver of the stolen vehicle began driving in the middle of the two traffic lanes and collided with three separate vehicles while fleeing from officers. The stolen vehicle was disabled during one of the traffic collisions and the driver fled from the stolen vehicle on foot.
Two female passengers of the stolen vehicle were apprehended. The driver was not located. There were no injuries to any of the involved parties.
The incident is still under investigation at this time.
