A 23-year-old man is in custody after he allegedly led multiple law enforcement officers on a high-speed pursuit that lasted a half-hour and spanned two freeways, according to authorities.
The suspect also struck multiple cars as he raced westbound on Florin Road from Highway 99 to Interstate 5, though nobody was injured, said Sacramento County Sheriff's Sgt. Jason Ramos.
The pursuit began in Rancho Cordova, when deputies developed information that 23-year-old Andre Rushing, who had a felony warrant out for his arrest in connection with a robbery, was inside a home on Mills Tower Drive, Ramos said.
The deputies saw Rushing get into a car and then tried to conduct a vehicle stop shortly after 11 a.m., but Rushing failed to yield, Ramos said. The suspect led deputies throughout Rancho Cordova, blowing through stoplights and at one point crashing through a fence, while driving at freeway speeds, Ramos said.
The suspect then got on westbound Highway 50 and then headed south on Highway 99, exiting on Florin Road. While driving westbound on Florin - at times reaching 90 miles per hour - the suspect crashed into several cars, Ramos said.
He then got on northbound Interstate 5 and was involved in some sort of collision near 43rd Avenue, but continued northbound, Ramos said. When he exited at J Street, the car spun out and officers detained the driver and a female passenger just before 11:40 a.m.
The passenger was released, but deputies arrested Rushing on the outstanding warrant. Ramos said he is likely to face fresh charges in connection with the pursuit, including felony evasion.
Sacramento police officers assisted in the pursuit. Nobody was injured.
