Car Pursuit in Bakersfield Ends in Accident

February 23, 2012- A car chase ends in a crash in Bakersfield, on Thursday. The accident happened at about 11:30 PM.

Bakersfield police said they tried to pull over a speeding car near Panama Lane and Stine Road, driven by Shephard Teal, 29. Officers said Teal refused to pull over and led them on a short pursuit.

After less than one minute, the chase was too dangerous and they backed off. Just about a minute later, and about two miles down the road, police say Teal’s car smashed into a pickup truck making a U-turn on New Stine Road at the intersection of Ming Avenue.


The woman driving the truck suffered minor injuries.

Teal was arrested at the scene of the collision.
