Two juveniles led a speed chase throughout several residential locations in Patterson before finally crashing into a power line Wednesday morning, Feb. 26.

Sgt. Paul Yotsuya of Patterson Police Services said they first received a call at approximately 7:45 a.m. by the Patterson High School administration regarding a fight at the Patterson High campus, located on North 9th Street.

A source at the school states that the juveniles were throwing beer from a stolen silver Ford Taurus at other students, egging on a fight before swiftly speeding away.

Although police were quick to act, Sgt. Yotsuya said the local authorities did not witness a fight on the campus. Instead, authorities immediately followed the speeders throughout the west side of Patterson for several miles. Eventually, the driver ended up crashing into a power line on South 4th Street.

The two juveniles were caught, and the driver was charged for driving under the influence, said Yotsuya Wednesday afternoon.

The driver also received minor injuries and was transported for medical clearance to Doctors Medical Center in Modesto by a patrol car.

The second juvenile, a passenger, was released to the parents. The passenger did not receive any injuries.
