DANVILLE – A 17-year-old boy was arrested Thursday morning after he led officers on a high speed chase through multiple counties, eventually surrendering to officers on a rural stretch of road in Alameda County.
The pursuit began when an officer attempted to pull over a 2016 Chevrolet Volt for speeding on Camino Tassajara near Sycamore Valley Road at 12:57 am Thursday morning, according to Danville Police Chief Allan Shields.
The vehicle fled and ultimately led officers on a pursuit that topped 100 mph on San Ramon Valley Blvd, then onto I-680 before taking the Bernal Avenue exit in Pleasanton.
Shields said the driver of the Volt continued to flee from officers on surface streets in Pleasanton until eventually surrendering on Calaveras Road, south of Geary Road in Fremont.
Police have identified the driver as a 17-year-old male from Alamo. Shields said two passengers inside the vehicle during the chase, a 17-year-old male from Alamo and a 15-year-old female from Danville were released to their parents.
The 17-year-old male driver was arrested for evading and child endangerment. He was also released to his parents, Shields said.
