PACIFICA — Two people were arrested after leading police on a early morning car chase Sunday, police said.
Pacifica police said the chase began a about 12:30 a.m. after an officer pulled the car over suspecting the driver was impaired. The car stopped near Reina Del Mar and Minerva Avenues, but then jumped the curb and sped away, according to a news release.
Officers chased after the car for a short time until the suspect’s car started driving the wrong way and headed northbound in the southbound lanes on Highway 1, police said.
Police said they found the car abandoned a short time later after the driver rammed into a metal guardrail at Mori Point Road and Bradford Way.
Without a suspect in sight, San Mateo County Sheriff’s officers and the California Highway Patrol were on the lookout, but they did not find anyone until about 5:30 a.m. when a resident in the area reported three people asking for a ride saying their car broke down.
Officers found the three and they were confirmed to be the suspects of the earlier car chase, one of whom was a 15-year-old Hayward boy who was reeled to the custody of his mother.
The driver is identified as 37-year-old Abraham Hernandez-Sanchez of Hayward. He was arrested on suspicion of evading arrest, child enlargement and possession of a controlled substance.
The third person was 31-year-old Guadalupe Padilla-Rios of Hayward, also arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance as well as possession of drug paraphernalia.
