A suspicious vehicle spotted by an officer unexpectedly took off, sparking a short pursuit that ended with a collision and a search for suspects near the Portola Glen neighborhood, Livermore Police Lt. Matt Sarsfield said.
At around 10 a.m. Tuesday, a patrol officer reported a suspicious black Buick at the 3600 block of Montrose Place, near North Mines Road.
The vehicle sped off and an officer initiated a pursuit that followed the vehicle down Highland Street and onto Portola Avenue, Sarsfield said.
The pursuit ended when the driver of the Buick attempted to make a right turn onto Edinburgh Drive, from Portola Avenue, and crashed into a concrete wall.
The driver of the vehicle suffered minor injuries and was taken to a hospital. He was arrested on suspicion of evading police, Sarsfield said.
While additional officers responded to the pursuit, police were told that two additional suspects were outstanding and set up a perimeter along Edinburgh Drive from Portola Avenue to Highland Street.
Both suspects were found — one inside a trash can and another inside a nearby backyard, Sarsfield said. The two males were detained and taken back to the Livermore Police Department for questioning.
No other injuries were reported and the incident is under investigation.
