Bennett Valley chase ends in crash, arrest

A high-speed chase through Bennett Valley early Friday evening led to a car crash at Hoen Avenue and Summerfield Road, and ended in an arrest at Montgomery and Kashmir drives.

The Sonoma County Sheriff's Office was pursuing a driver who came into Santa Rosa around 4:30 or 5 p.m., according to an officer from Santa Rosa Police Department.

"They pursued him in Santa Rosa, he got in a crash there on Hoen and then ended up coming to a stop somewhere off of Kashmir," said the police officer, who didn't give his name. "It was one vehicle that was hit, and a lady that had very minor injuries."

A witness described seeing a driver peel around a corner in a 1991 Mustang near Hoen and Yulupa Avenue, with sheriff's deputies and two black police cars chasing behind. Drivers were advised by Santa Rosa Police Department to stay away from the area after the crash.

A dispatcher from Sonoma County Sheriff's Office would not answer questions about the incident.
