Juvenile Arrested for Stolen Vehicle After Pursuit Ended in Traffic Accident
Yesterday about 1:10 p.m., a pursuit by a California Highway Patrol Officer ended with a juvenile arrested and a stolen car from Fresno recovered near Myers Flat.
According to a CHP spokesperson, the officer attempted to pull over a black Honda Civic on Hwy 101 because of excessive speed. The driver failed to yield and fled down the Myers Flat offramp. The car collided with the embankment but the driver managed to keep going, turning northbound on the Avenue of the Giants.
The CHP spokesperson said that soon after turning onto the Avenue, however, a vehicle stopped. The driver, an out-of-the-area juvenile, was taken into custody without incident.
One of the passengers was taken to Jerold Phelps hospital with minor injuries. Another passenger received no injuries. Both were released.
