On Sunday night, September 13th, the Vacaville Police Department arrested two teenagers after a chase ended in a crash in Vacaville, California. They identified the two as Khevionze Gutierrez, 18, of Vallejo, and Ramon Smith, 18, of Richmond.
The police’s accident report showed that officers chased the two near Opal Drive and Fernbrook Court. Although they failed to disclose what led to the pursuit, the VPD revealed that they continued following the suspect’s vehicle until they struck a parked car.
The incident occurred along Summerbreeze Drive, and the collision impact left Gutierrez and Smith’s car disabled. The teenagers alighted from their vehicle and started jumping over fences into backyards.
The police dispatched K9 to search for the two, and with the help of residents calling to report Gutierrez and Smith in their backyards, they found and arrested them. They booked the teenagers into the Solano County Jail and they are facing charges related to the case.
The VPD asked anyone who found clothing or any other item belonging to the two to report it at the station or call the listed line. There is no additional information at this time.
Most police chase begins with a failed traffic stop. The latter occurs when the police stop a vehicle which they have strong reason to believe contains an impaired driver, or if the person is driving beyond the speed limit. Others are equipment violation, improper lane changes, tailgating, and cell phone usage.
