A female suspect was taken into custody following a chase Tuesday evening that took Contra Costa County sheriff’s deputies into Berkeley and ended in a crash into a freeway retaining wall, sheriff’s officials said.
Around 5:50 p.m., deputies responded to a report that someone was trespassing in the 700 block of El Centro Road in El Sobrante.
Sheriff’s officials said the caller told them an unknown vehicle was parked on the property of a vacant home.
Deputies arrived and were checking the status of the vehicle when it sped away. Deputies learned it had been reported stolen.
Sheriff’s officials said deputies chased the driver onto westbound Interstate Highway 80 before the driver crashed her vehicle near the Gilman Street exit.
The name of the suspect hasn’t being released. After the crash, she complained of pain. She was taken to a hospital before being taken to the Contra Costa County jail.
