Hwy 50 Chase Leads To Peaceful End After Hours Long Standoff With Suspect


A pursuit along Highway 50 has ended after a man lead several law enforcement agencies through multiple counties, forcing the closure of Highway 50 for three hours due to the driver's erratic behavior. The man, now detained and in police custody, was seen being pulled from his blue Ford F-150 pick up truck around 10:30 AM Monday. Highway 50 was closed during the altercation with the suspect for the hours long standoff with authorities. The pursuit of the driver crossed several jurisdictions involving different types of sheriffs and police agencies including California Highway Patrol. The pursuit started in Solano County and crossed to Interstate 80 then crossing into Camino onto Highway 50, where it ultimately came to an end in El Dorado County just before 12 PM.

The high speed chase started sometime around 7 AM and by 7:20, the driver had stopped along Highway 50 at Snows Road near Camino and refused to exit his vehicle. This caused about 12 students at the nearby Camino Union Elementary School to shelter in place. The school has canceled class for the day, sending students home when roads reopened. All students impacted were unharmed during this incident. Around 8:20 AM, police and sheriff's had the Ford F-150 surrounded and were using loudspeakers to coax the driver out of the vehicle safely. Reports from the scene show damage to the front driver's side wheel of the suspect's truck, but no information on how that damage was sustained. By 10:27 AM, a K9 was released and the driver's side window was broken. Armed law enforcement used the broken window to force their way into the vehicle and force the suspect out.
