Two carjacking suspects arrested after pursuit over Bay Bridge into San Francisco 

The California Highway Patrol chased an Oakland carjacking suspect over the Bay Bridge and into San Francisco city streets, where they detained two people Monday morning, a CHP spokesman said.

Oakland police were trying to stop the suspect in a Chevrolet Impala and requested CHP assistance on Interstate Highway 580 near Lakeshore Avenue at about 10:40 a.m., Oakland-area CHP spokesman Sean Wilkenfeld said.

The driver continued onto Interstate Highway 80 to the Bay Bridge, where he went through the toll plaza with CHP officers following behind him, Wilkenfeld said.

The officers tried to pull the driver over on the bridge, but the driver wouldn't pull over. The CHP officers pursued the Impala as the driver fled and sideswiped a few vehicles on the highway, CHP San Francisco spokesman Officer Vu Williams said.

Eventually the driver exited the highway at Octavia Street and continued fleeing on San Francisco city streets, where the Impala struck another car near the intersection of Market and Gough streets. The two occupants then got out of the Impala and took off running.

CHP officers captured both suspects about a block east of the crash scene and arrested them, Williams said. There were no reports of injuries from the crash.
