A high-speed chase on Interstate 680 in Contra Costa County on Friday morning ended with the arrest of four people, Danville police said.
The incident began around 10:24 a.m. when the California Highway Patrol reported that it was pursuing a red 2019 Dodge Challenger, according to Danville police Lt. Doug Muse.
A witness reported to police that, after the CHP lost contact with the Challenger, the vehicle had exited the freeway at El Cerro Boulevard in Danville and parked on the side of the road. Four individuals abandoned the vehicle and fled into the neighborhood at Adobe Drive, according to a police news release.
Officers from the Danville and San Ramon police departments and the Contra Costa Sheriff's Office located and arrested the suspects following a search of the area.
Four people — three young adults from Oakland and one from Hayward — were arrested on suspicion of various allegations including possession of a stolen vehicle, probation violation and resisting arrest.
The four were booked at the Martinez Detention Facility. They may face further charges once the Berkeley and San Leandro police departments complete their investigations, police said.
