In the early morning hours of Wednesday, April 2, 2014, two people were killed in a crash involving a police chase near Sacramento, reported the Los Angeles Times. The pursuit began after a burglary investigation in Auburn around 5 a.m. Authorities chased the three suspects on side streets until they abandoned the vehicle, at which point one suspect was apprehended. The other two suspects then stole a white truck, and the pursuit continued on I-80, with the suspects reaching speeds of up to 100 mph. When they exited near Antelope Road, they ran a red light and struck a car with the truck, killing the two occupants inside. Officers took one suspect into custody immediately and caught the other in a nearby house. The accident is under investigation.
