High-Speed Chase Results in Crash, Injuries for Teen Pair

Sponsored by:

Police are investigating whether alcohol played a role in a high-speed chase early Sunday, where 2 teenagers were injured in a crash while fleeing.

Names have not been released, but reports say around 3am on Sunday, a Sonora police officer tried to pull over a 2002 Chevy Silverado pickup on suspicion of speeding. The truck took off, and led the officer on a chase, going as fast as 90 miles per hour on Washington Street. Just before hitting Highway 108, the 17-year-old driver reportedly lost control of the truck and launched 100 feet through the air before crashing at the bottom of a ravine. The driver suffered a broken leg and shattered ankle. His 15-year-old passenger had a broken nose, a fractured collarbone, and possible two broken wrists.
