Kiashira Ruiz Modesto Car Accident on Sylvan AvenueLOCATION: Modesto

DATE OF COLLISION: Wednesday, September 12th

September 12, 2018 – A police chase ended in a traffic collision Wednesday afternoon on Sylvan Avenue, according to Modesto Bee.

At about 2 p.m. on Wednesday, a witness called police after seeing two people breaking into a community mailbox in the Eastgate neighborhood. The suspects reportedly left the scene in a Toyota Yaris.

Responding officers apparently attempted to pull over the suspects, but the Yaris driver failed to yield.

Ceres officers then pursued the vehicle as it drove in circles around north Modesto. The chase came to a stop when the Yaris and a Ceres police K9 officer vehicle collided on Sylvan Avenue, east of McHenry.
