BERKELEY (CBS SF) — A missing and at risk teen was detained by California Highway Patrol early Wednesday as she ran along I-80 in Berkeley, dodging on-coming cars.

The CHP said the incident took place around 12:30 a.m. on I-80 near Ashby Ave. 911 callers reported a woman dashing in between lanes, forcing vehicles to veer out of her way.

CHP officers responded from Oakland and a helicopter with infra-red cameras was dispatched.

The helicopter helped the CHP officers locate the woman and take her into protective custody.

There were no injuries and the 16-year-old was detained for being a pedestrian on the freeway.
