YUCAIPA: Man arrested after high-speed chase

09 Apr

The California Highway Patrol arrested a man in Yucaipa who had crashed a car into a tree in Banning, then led them on a high-speed chase back and forth on Interstate 10 this afternoon.

Officers were called to 8th Street in Banning at 12:42 p.m. after a car reportedly hit a tree there, a CHP dispatcher said. The crash may have resulted from a domestic altercation between two people in the car, the dispatcher said, citing a log of the incident.

When officers arrived, the man drove away. He first drove east on Interstate 10, then got off and traveled westbound, coming to a stop at Oak Glen Road in Yucaipa about 1:50 p.m. He ran from the car, but officers quickly caught him, the dispatcher said.

The man’s name was not immediately available.
