A police chase in California ended Wednesday with a five-vehicle crash, including a C6 Corvette, briefly shutting down the westbound connector between Highway 24 and I-580 in Oakland.
Oakland police were chasing two suspects being sought in connection with illegal firearm possession when the crash occurred. Lawmen eventually were able to capture the two suspects but not before the serious five-vehicle crash that caused the rear end of a white SUV to wind up on top of the blue Corvette coupe.
California Highway Patrol officials said only minor injuries were reported in the crash, which blocked traffic for about two hours Wednesday evening. The connector reopened at 7:49 p.m.
