Two Arrested, Sent to Hospital After Police Chase Ends in Crash

Occupants spotted in a reported stolen vehicle led police on a chase that ended in a crash.

A brief police chase that sped through a heavy-populated downtown during Monday's lunch hour ended with a crash on Linden Street, just off North Livermore Avenue.

Around noon, police spotted a car in downtown that was reported stolen earlier in the day, Captain Steve Gallagher said.

An officer attempted to stop the car — occupied by two people — but the driver instead sped away and police initiated a pursuit that started near First Street, Gallagher said.

The chase lasted about a minute and ended when the driver, speeding and zipping through traffic northbound on North Livermore Avenue, attempted to make a left turn onto Linden Street and crashed into a parked truck.

Witnesses said the driver ran stop signs, red lights and dodged several vehicles during the brief chase.

The occupants of the vehicle after the collision fled on foot in opposite directions, but were caught and arrested by officers nearby on K Street and on North Livermore Avenue, Gallagher said.

Both were taken to a hospital for minor injuries related to the collision, Gallagher said.

No other traffic collisions or injuries were reported during the chase.

"It was a safe job by all our guys," Gallagher said. "But reckless on this guy's part."

A portion of Linden Street will be closed this afternoon as police continue to investigate the incident.

The carjacking didn't happen in Livermore. The scanner said the car was stolen in a car jacking from another city... I think it was Stockton or Manteca area??? But yeah heard they caught one female nobody else, but they were giving names out left and right like they had more info on the suspects

@ Scanner guy: I think you are lying about your knowledge of the incident. If you knew you would have shared you information

They can still get a prison sentence and never make it to prison. If its their first prison term they'll be out in less than a year.

I was listing to scanner till 3 am said one female arrested 2 outstanding. They had a house to house search going on as I live in the area and seemed like a lot of police were searching. Problem is there is a lot of open fields to hide in that area. Also heard one suspect left his wallet in car so maybe they know at least who one of them is.

@ mike s I really don't care what you think, I have no reason to lie about it or anything else I comment about on this site.

Because 1) No fathers,Out screwing any monkey that will hold still.2) They don't even care about their own blood!!!! ???? OMG!!!.3)Most think work is a dirty four letter word.4) They all think they are social experts who are ENTITLED to their FREE money!!!.This used to piss me off to no end.Finally I have to say the worst thing is watching a precious little child around these unconscious monkeys with NO hope for the future.This used to kill my spirit.I am very glad I no longer am around this very very very ILL society of looser monkeys.

Steve, your the only one i agree with on this site.
Local July 04, 2012 at 04:44 PM
Not sure where you gathered your info but you're sadly mistaken! I can't say I love Livermore like I used to but you've exaggerated your opinion and speak of Livermore is if it were comparable to places like Oakland!! You're delusional, buddy!
Lori Johnson July 04, 2012 at 05:13 PM
Liver Moron, if you don't like Livermore, move.
Steve July 04, 2012 at 06:01 PM
Thanks liver moron.I moved to this town in1994 and I love it here still even though the changes have been enormous.It reminded me of Fremont, my home town.Fremont was awesome until about 1980 then it was overrun by snake tamers and silicon valley techno-nerds so I got t he F out and came here.All three of my sons came through this school system here and I am fortunate they grew up here.They are fine young men now and all doing well.Take care and be careful on Independence day,The police love amateur day!!!.
Steve July 04, 2012 at 06:07 PM

Liver Moron July 05, 2012 at 02:51 AM
Congrats steve you sound like you know what your talking about! Snake tamers and techmo nerds "hilarious"!!!!!
FRETLESS06 July 05, 2012 at 03:06 AM
I think we are all missing the point. A fantastic mid 90s F-350 was the true victim here. Has anyone heard if there will be a service? D.S.C. I am sorry for your loss.
Liver Moron July 05, 2012 at 03:41 AM
The truck is definately wack, a gas guzzling fake cowboy car
Wendy C July 05, 2012 at 06:23 AM
Thanks for ur condolences frettless06. ;) The truck is unfortunately totaled. @ Liver Moron, the mileage was not to bad, it's a diesel not gas, and my husbands a carpenter who used the truck for work not to be a fake cowboy. If your going to be so confrontational put your name out there. Everyone that reads any of your posts already knows your a moron. Get a life.
Liver Moron July 05, 2012 at 07:00 PM
Fake cowboy town!
Wendy C July 05, 2012 at 07:25 PM
Get a life. You are rediculous. You sound like an ignorant judgmental hypocrite.
Don C July 05, 2012 at 07:38 PM
Why don't you post you're name, quit hiding. F'n worm didn't you're mother teach you any respect
Lori Johnson July 05, 2012 at 08:06 PM
Regarding Liver Moron's comments and to everyone who dislikes his comments, I suggest we all just ignore him and don't respond to his rants. If we all ignore him, his words have no power and maybe he will tire of this forum and stop commenting. If that doesn't work and he keeps on commenting, at least we have not wasted our energy and time typing meaningless responses to his comments. I, for one, will be practicing this from now on. I hope you all will join me.
OhMamma July 05, 2012 at 08:28 PM
Meh. Just flag everything he posts as inappropriate, and move on. He's a bored little kid, getting a rise out of upsetting strangers on the internet. Don't feed the trolls people.
patty robins July 05, 2012 at 08:43 PM
"flag " Liver Moron is a great idea because his comments are rude, agressive and abusive! ,.......he/she is fully in charge of negative ranting and offers NOTHING to the subject..... uh oh,..,.PREPARE to be attacked !!! eeeeck, oh dear............

I bet they were second generation Japanese scumbags from Stanford. Dang Asians....always causing trouble with their lack of education. Let's ship em off to where their parents come from!
Bianca La Salle July 10, 2012 at 10:52 PM
I get on here to read whats going on in my home town. And reading everyones comments about getting a life. Sounds like to me all of you need a life. Not sit there on the computer and bullshit and bicker back in forth. As far as I can see you all are immature and wasting your time. When there's more important things to worry about. Just like I wasted a full 2 minutes writing this lol.

One guy is a homeless Livermore resident at age 26. His mom won't allow him to live with her. Robert Allen is his name. The driver was a guy named Carlos, he is really bad news. Robert Allen is currently on probation for a felony last July for stealing credit cards and using them. He attempted to run from the police after the crash. When he was caught he admitted to being high on meth. But guess what, he walked out of Santa Rita on Monday night. He is free. Free to keep the rest of us in danger!,
