California Highway Patrol officers were behind a Ford F350 pickup truck wanted as a stolen vehicle Wednesday morning, the vehicle fleeing down I680 and onto westbound Highway 24 where it crashed just west of Pleasant Hill Road.
Motorists report that a person fled from the crash site on foot but was detained shortly afterward.
Two ambulances were summoned. Photos provided by NEWS24/680 Flashers showed a second civilian vehicle also involved in the crash. Its occupants were not injured.
CHP officers said they first tried to pull the truck over on Highway 4 at San Marco Boulevard in Pittsburg.
