A suspect led officers on a wild chase on I-580 and through city streets in Oakland. At one point, the driver went the wrong way and nearly hit several cars.
The chase started around 2:15 p.m. on Thursday. The suspect, who the CHP says was driving a stolen car, reportedly drove the wrong way on I-580 and then led officers through Piedmont. Sky7 was overhead as the suspect also drove the wrong way on surface streets.
About 30 minutes after the chase began, officers were successfully able to stop the suspect by using the CHP PIT maneuver, or Pursuit Intervention Technique. This is when the pursuing vehicle forces the fleeing car to abruptly turn sideways, causing the driver to lose control and stop.
After the suspect's car was hit and stopped on a residential road, the driver got out and surrendered peacefully to police. There are no reports of injuries at this time.
