STOCKTON -- Two people, including a suspect, were injured Tuesday when a police pursuit ended in a major crash in Stockton.

Investigators say an officer was patrolling near the Crosstown Freeway and noticed the driver of the Nissan breaking the law.

When the officer tried to stop the driver, investigators say the driver took off speeding.

The chase went through some city streets and, ultimately, onto Highway 99, where a CHP aircraft was assisting in the pursuit.

However, the high-speed chase ended when the suspect neared East Hammer Lane.

“The vehicle exited Hammer Lane. At that point, a CHP supervisor canceled the pursuit, lights were deactivated, but the vehicle continued at a high rate of speed westbound,” said Officer Ruben Jones.

Officer Jones said the driver collided with a white BMW. The force was so great it knocked the engine out of the car.

The debris also caused damage to a third car, a red Chevrolet Cruze.

The suspect’s car flipped over and the two people inside were taken to the hospital with major injuries.

Officer Jones said the driver of the BMW sustained minor injuries and the person in the Chevrolet was not injured.

East Hammer Lane will remain closed for some time as officers investigate the scene.
