Two juveniles arrested after high-speed car chase, crash into Winters home

Two juveniles accused of leading law enforcement officers on a car chase through Yolo County before crashing into a Winters home early Tuesday have been taken into custody.

The vehicle crashed into a home on Russell Boulevard before its occupants fled, according to a Yolo County Sheriff’s Office news release.

The chase began when the two people fled from an area outside the Juvenile Detention Facility in Woodland after a disturbance took place about 3:45 a.m. Tuesday, according to the news release.

The pair fled in an unidentified vehicle, driving slowly through Woodland and then heading south into areas of unincorporated Yolo County, authorities said. Sheriff’s officials said the occupants of the vehicle switched places between Woodland and Davis before the pursuit reached speeds of 100 mph.

As the pursuit neared Woodland, a Winters police sergeant successfully deployed a spike strip, sheriff’s officials said. The vehicle continued toward Winters before the driver lost control and crashed into the side of a Winters residence. The home’s occupants were not injured, according to the release.

The juveniles were found about 1 p.m. at a residence in the 500 block of California Street in Woodland. Sheriff’s officials said both will be booked on suspicion of offenses that include felony evading of law enforcement officers. Their names have not been released because they are juveniles.

Matt Davis, spokesman for the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office, said the disturbance at the detention center is still under investigation.

In addition to the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office and Winters Police Department, the California Highway Patrol, Solano County Sheriff’s Office, and the Woodland and Davis police departments assisted during the incident.
