CONCORD (KPIX) — A police chase in Concord Saturday ended with a fatal crash in front of a preschool.

The pursuit began in Clayton and ended on Myrtle Drive in Concord when the suspect’s car crashed into the front lawn of a Montessori school.

Jason Stoddard saw the aftermath — a white Toyota sedan with paper plates from Dublin Toyota flipped.

“I saw about eight cop cars swoop in right after ’em, sirens blaring,” Stoddard told KPIX.

Officers from Clayton and Concord along with the Highway Patrol told neighbors that the car was stolen.

There were two women and a dog inside.

“(There was) a lot of blood,” Stoddard said. “(One woman) got carried away on a stretcher. She didn’t look to be in too good condition and the other one was completely lifeless when they brought her out of the car,” he added.

  1. Reporters: we ALWAYS want to know what happened to the animal! Put that in the story! I know it sounds cold, but I actually care more about the dog. It didn’t steal a car or choose to lead a high-speed chase, and its life was put in jeopardy by other people’s poor choices. Did the dog survive, or not?

    1. KCBS is too cheap to hire real reporters, so they just throw up the fewest details that they have to and then go about cashing their paychecks.
      They could outsource most of their staff to a 3rd world country such as India and the quality of their reporting would not suffer (though it may include random references to curry and rotis).

  2. Sad that both women did not die. It would have been the perfect MothersDay gift to the rest of us.
