Authorities have confirmed the deaths of two women involved in a high-speed police chase that ended in a traffic wreck in Vacaville, California. The Solano County Coroner’s Office said on Tuesday, June 2, that Jaiah Metcalf, 21 and Alazae Jeffery, 19, did not survive the wreck. The incident calls for the expertise of a car accident lawyer.

The California Highway Patrol recorded the crash on Monday morning, June 1, at the AM-PM mini-market located on the 1400 block of Alamo Drive. The precise time of the collision is unknown, but officers said it began with a high-speed pursuit through Vacaville.

The incident kicked off when officers tried to stop a vehicle, driven by Tayshawn Larun Clayton, 21, on the eastbound Interstate 80. The motorist failed to pull over, but left the location at a high rate of speed, with officers in her trail. The car continued driving through the city until it crashed at Alamo Lane while trying to exit onto Alamo Drive.

Jaiah Metcalf, of Elk Grove and Alazae Jeffery, of Sacramento were passengers in the fleeing vehicles. Both died from injuries suffered in the traffic wreck.

Clayton survived the wreck with minor to moderate injuries. CHP officers apprehended her, and transported her to the hospital for treatment, before booking her into the Solano County Jail. The driver faces charges of DUI-drug resulting in bodily injury, evading police resulting in serious bodily injury or death, and two counts of gross vehicular manslaughter.

People involved in traffic wrecks can contact a car accident lawyer for counsel and representation.
