Davis man, 24, arrested after high-speed pursuit through Pleasanton

Car chase started in Sonoma County

California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers were led on a high-speed car chase through Pleasanton and ending near the Los Altos Hills on Tuesday afternoon.

The chase started in Vacaville, and the driver fled, speeding south on Interstate 680 through Contra Costa and Alameda counties, according to the CHP.

The driver, identified as 24-year-old Davis resident Ramon Bernal, continued into San Jose and onto Interstate 280 until reaching Magdalena Avenue, where the car crashed and flipped just after 3 p.m., according to the CHP.

Bernal stepped out of the car at his own accord and officers conducted a felony stop on him, CHP officials said.

He was transported to the hospital for evaluation. Once medically cleared, he was to be booked into Santa Clara County Jail on suspicion of felony evasion and drug DUI.
