MARTINEZ, CA (December 7, 2021) – 3 people arrested and at least one sustain injuries after a pursuit ends in a crash on Carquinez Bridge.

The incident happened around 8:52 p.m. last Tuesday, in the area of Carquinez Bridge near I-80.

According to police, they attempted to stop an Audi that was allegedly driving recklessly at speeds of up to 120 mph.

When the motorist did not yield, the deputy began a vehicle pursuit. The chase ultimately came to a stop just before the bridge.

Meanwhile, the driver of the other vehicle sustained minor injuries and officers did not release if he was hospitalized or treated at the scene.
