Police Chase Toll Evader Across Bay Bridge

No one was injured Thursday morning in a vehicle pursuit that started at the Bay Bridge toll plaza in Oakland, went across the bridge and ended near the Fremont Street off-ramp in San Francisco, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The chase started at 9 a.m. when a CHP officer tried to stop a toll evader, CHP Officer Vu Williams said.

The driver of a red Honda Civic drove off when the officer tried to stop him. He then sideswiped two vehicles as he drove up the bridge's incline, Williams said.

The suspect lost control of the Civic east of Fremont Street, hitting a big-rig and a box truck before the vehicle became disabled, according to Williams.

Officers caught and arrested the suspect as he ran from the vehicle. The suspect's name is not yet being released.
