High Speed Chase Ends in Accident East of Hoopa
A high-speed chase that began before 8:30 p.m. went east of Hoopa onto Upper Mill Creek Road and ended in an accident. According to scanner traffic, the officer on the scene at approximately 8:40 p.m. reported that one person was under the front of the vehicle after the accident. Others had fled into the brush.
A few minutes later though the officer reported that it was a woman that was under the vehicle. “She was not struck by the vehicle,” the officer told dispatch. “She is conscious and alert. Left arm pain” and then he said something about her back.
An ambulance was dispatched to the scene.
Not long afterward, the officer said he had an additional person at gunpoint, a man. Both were taken into custody.
By about 8:50 p.m., another woman had been taken into custody but there was a fourth person “outstanding” meaning not yet taken into custody.
We heard three, two women and one man, being taken into custody. However, the information came over the scanner and details are not always as first reported.
