Multiple police cars sped through the city early Monday morning in pursuit of a vehicle they believed to be responsible for striking numerous parked cars in the Bayview. According to ABC 7, the chase began around 1:00 a.m. after officers received a call reporting the vehicle — it was when they tried to pull the driver over that she apparently took off.
As the chase was ongoing, at least one neighbor took to Twitter to report what he saw.
@burritojustice at least 10 police vehicles sped through 29th and Mission one of which was an unmarked police vehicle.— Jean-Paul Torres (@jpnv) May 2, 2016
After a pursuit of roughly fifteen minutes, the tire came off the front right wheel and SFPD was able to arrest the driver. ABC 7 reports that the chase ended on Mission between 29th and Valencia, and the same neighbor tweeted about the surrounding streets being shut off by police as a result.
Seems like the entire block between 29th and Valencia on Mission is closed off by SFPD.— Jean-Paul Torres (@jpnv) May 2, 2016
Thankfully, at present there are no reports of injuries resulting from the early morning chase. The driver was arrested at the scene.
