The officer tried to stop the vehicle by activating the cruiser’s lights and sirens, but instead of stopping, the car continued south and took the exit at E. Dunne Avenue, Vincent said.
The car crashed into the center median and flipped onto its roof, Vincent said. Both the driver and the passenger ran away from the car and Vincent said the passenger was taken into custody almost immediately.READ MORE: COVID: Bay Area Health Officials, Schools Prepare To Vaccinate Kids 5-11 As Authorization Looms
