stocktonpursuitSACRAMENTO COUNTY—

Sheriffs are still looking for man who led them on a short car chase early Tuesday morning.

A deputy tried to pull over a car near Martin Luther King Boulevard and 23rd Avenue around 1 a.m., but that driver refused to stop.

After a short pursuit, the driver hit another car near 14th Avenue and Stockton Boulevard and decided to bail — while his car was still moving.

Deputies set up a perimeter in the area, but they have not been able to find the driver.

An underage girl was inside the car with the suspect. Deputies say that she did not run and will probably be taken home.

Drug paraphernalia was found in the suspect’s car, deputies note.
