SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A pursuit ended with a police cruiser hitting an Oak Park home and a suspect being taken into custody Saturday morning.

Sacramento Police initiated a pursuit after a reckless driver near Broadway and 42nd Street refused to pull over during a traffic stop, and instead accelerated to speeds reaching 70 miles per hour and racing through several stop signs.

The suspect made a sudden turn in an Oak Park neighborhood, slamming into a gate. A police cruiser tried to follow the vehicle through the turn, but ended up crashing through a fence and hitting a home.

The driver and passenger in the suspect vehicle fled the scene on foot. The passenger was arrested but the driver is still at large.

No injuries were reported in the incident.

    ohhhh–That’s a humdinger of an embarrassing moment. Imagine what his coworkers will say in the morning….”so, what did the garage do to you?”
    heeee–heee heee–naw really, jokes aside, I’m glad no one is hurt.
    When they catch the dude who ran, he should be help liable for the damages. He is the one that caused the excess speeds and police presence.

    Matt, you are just plain rude; did you get up on the wrong side of the bed?? It’s a fair question, one that I can answer… Once she files a claim (one that includes estimates on the cost of repair) with the Sacramento PD, the City Council will hear the claim info during a Council meeting and they can either reject the claim or authorize it for payment. In this case, because the cause of damage happened by one of their Police cruizers, they will authorize payment and the work can be done. It’s actually much faster than going thru your own insurance company. My truck was side-swiped by a Sheriff vehicle and I immeidately filed a claim with two estimates and was given the authorization to have it repaired within 2 or 3 weeks. The homeowner should start getting repair estimates ASAP so she can turn her claim form in sooner rather than later. I believe she has just 6-months to turn one in.
