Lamorinda police detained five people who fled from the wreckage of a car which crashed on Camino Pablo at Highway 24 at 2:20 p.m. Thursday.
Police Chief Mark Nagel said his department was notified of a hit and run crash that occurred on Westbound Highway 24 at Camino Pablo at about that time, with five occupants of that car running towards the Pine Grove Business Park in Orinda.
Orinda, Lafayette, California Highway Patrol units – supported by a Sheriff’s helicopter – responded to the area, ultimately detaining five people in various locations throughout the business park. Two of the occupants had outstanding warrants, according to Nagel, who thanked adjacent jurisdictions for their response and community members who “assisted by telling us they saw the suspects running towards the business park.”
Two of those detained were treated for minor injuries. The CHP is investigating the cause of the crash.
