CHP officers first attempted to stop the speeding green 2005 Ford Expedition around 9:10 a.m. in West Sacramento on westbound Interstate Highway 80 near Reed Avenue, said CHP Officer Steve Creel. The driver failed to stop and continued west at a high rate of speed toward the Bay Area.
CHP officials tracked the speeding SUV via helicopter as it traveled from Interstate 80 to southbound Interstate Highway 680 and south to Fremont.In Fremont, the vehicle turned around at Auto Mall Parkway and traveled north again on Highway 680.CHP officers used a spike strip to stop the vehicle near Koopman Road in Sunol, Creel said. Jennifer Zinn, 44, was arrested and taken to the Dublin CHP office for evaluation.
There is no obvious indication that she was intoxicated at this time, but tests will be conducted, Creel said. Zinn’s motive for allegedly fleeing remains unknown. No other vehicles were involved in the pursuit and no one was injured, Creel said.
