FRENCH CAMP—

Four deputies were hurt in a crash during a stolen car chase Sunday night, the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Department says.

The chase started around 9 p.m., when a deputy tried to pull over a car that was reported stolen during a carjacking in Stockton earlier.

Deputies were led on a chase from eastbound I-205 to El Dorado Street and French Camp Road. In that area, sheriff’s say the car turned off its lights. The deputies then had to slam the breaks on their car to avoid rear-ending another car that was in the way of the chase.

But the deputy lost control of his car and soon crashed into another car.

Sheriff’s say that two more patrol cars were involved in another crash while trying to get back to the area where the first crash happened.

In total, three sheriff’s patrol cars were damaged in the crashes, resulting in injuries to four deputies. One person uninvolved in the chase had their car damaged as well. All deputies were taken to hospital to be treated for minor injuries.

A passenger of the stolen car was taken into custody, but the driver is still on the run. The stolen car was found abandoned near Stanislaus and Church Streets in Stockton.
