Hercules Police Terminate High-Speed Pursuit Due to Public Safety Concerns

A driver escaped arrest Saturday night after fleeing from a traffic stop in Hercules, according to police. An officer watched a Toyota Camry fail to stop at a stop sign at the intersection of Lupine Road and Manzanita Place.

The driver turned off the vehicle’s lights and accelerated away, leading the officer on a pursuit around several different roadways before eventually heading west on Refugio Valley Road and evading a spike-strip deployed at the intersection of Country Run and side-swiping an eastbound truck.

The pursuit was terminated due to public safety concerns after the driver ran a red light at high speed in the vicinity of Pinole Valley Road.
