Thursday morning at 4:55 a.m. a man car-jacked and robbed a woman in the city of Richmond, California. Although her husband came out to assist her, the suspect left the scene driving her white Cadillac Escalade.
Richmond police pursued the stolen Escalade until the California Highway Patrol took over pursuit on the 580 freeway, then to the 101 freeway and crossed the Golden Gate bridge into San Francisco.
San Francisco policed then joined the pursuit but lost the stolen SUV in the area of Bush and Taylor streets.
At 5:55 a.m., however, police dispatch received a report about a rollover accident at California and Battery. The Escalade was found there and several witnesses attempted to be “Good Samaritans” and help the suspect immediately after the collision because he appeared to be trapped under the car but he began shooting at them.
