Police chase, crash closes Bakersfield streets

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — Parts of a couple central Bakersfield streets were closed Wednesday after a police chase ended with a crash.

A burglary investigation at C.P. Mining and Construction Equipment Co. led officers to try a traffic stop on a brown pickup with a red trailer. The driver didn't stop for officers, and a short chased followed.

The chase came to a stop when the suspect crashed with another car at East Truxtun Avenue and Tulare Street. The intersection of East Truxtun and Tulare, along with a section of East Truxtun, were closed in the aftermath of the crash.

The suspect continued to allegedly resist arrest before being taken into custody.

Only minor injuries were reported from the crash.
