Sonora CHP Involved In Morning Pursuit

Sponsored by:

Jamestown, CA — The Sonora area CHP was involved in a pursuit that started at 9:50 this morning in the Willow Springs area.

Even with siren and red lights a U-Haul truck failed to stop leading the CHP through Soulsbyville onto Tuolumne Rd. and then to Wards Ferry Rd. The truck then proceeded to the Algerene area and then into Jamestown where it almost hit an officer while trying to avoid a spike strip.

The spike strip flattened the left rear tire. When the vehicle came to a full stop officers arrested 29 year old Jessica Karen Miller of Sonora. Initial charges include failure to yield, assault with a deadly weapon in addition to hit and run.

Officer Tom Wills says Miller is being tested for possible alcohol and/or drug intoxication. Upon completion of the testing she will be booked into the County Jail.

Wills added that Miller had no wants or warrants at the time of her arrest.
