Police Car Chase Ends in Vehicle Collision at Rinaldi and Houston, in Visalia

Visalia Accident Attorney John Rozier has the subsequent collision report; On Wednesday, July 8, 2015, a car accident, following a police chase, occurred in Tulare County.  The vehicle crash happened  in north Visalia at about 4:30 PM.

A parked stolen Plymouth Neon, with two women and a man inside, was spotted by Visalia officers in the area of North Giddings Street.  As the police approached the automobile on foot, the Neon sped off, headed northbound.

The officers got in their patrol car and followed the Plymouth.  The officers broke off the chase as the stolen vehicle continued to drive at a high rate of speed through the neighborhood.

The Neon continued to speed away on Rinaldi Street, where it ran a stop sign at the intersection of Houston Avenue.  The auto then lost control, and crashed head-on into a Ford Thunderbird that was stopped at the north side of the intersection.

The three suspects then ran away on foot.  They were arrested a short time later in the backyard of a home that was just about four houses north of the incident.

The three victims in the Thunderbird, which included a child, did sustain injuries, but reportedly nothing serious.
