Vehicle catches fire, juveniles facing charges after 120 mph pursuit through San Ramon Valley

DANVILLE – An adult and two juveniles are facing charges after evading police officers through multiple jurisdictions Saturday morning.

According to Danville Police Chief Allan Shields, officers attempted to stop a Black Acura for Vehicle Code violations in the area of Greenbrook Drive and Camino Ramon at 1:51 am Saturday.

The vehicle refused to stop and officers immediately gave chase, Shields said.

Officers pursued the vehicle at 80 mph on Crow Canyon to Dougherty Road before the vehicle made a u-turn back toward San Ramon where a San Ramon PD K9 unit was able to join the pursuit.

The vehicle continued fleeing in the northbound lanes of I-680 at speeds of 120 mph before ultimately crashing on the Livorna Road offramp from I-680 in Alamo. Officers took two subjects into custody after they ran from the vehicle.

Firefighters with the San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District responded to extinguish a grass and vehicle fire after the Acura caught fire following the crash.

A third suspect was located nearby shortly after. Suspects were taken to a local hospital but there were no reported injuries.

The adult suspect is identified as Raheem Lewis, 18, from Antioch. He is charged with resisting, obstructing and felony evading of an officer.

The two juveniles are identified only as a 15-year-old male from Antioch and a 15-year-old female from San Pablo. Both juveniles are facing resisting and obstructing charges.
