3 arrested in Roseville after police pursuit

Crashes can happen for many reasons, but one of the most surprising is when a crash happens due to a police chase. The police generally do not chase suspects when it means that they could put others in danger. They did in this case, and the suspects ended up getting into multiple collisions.

In the interesting story about the car crash that happened in Roseville, the police in Roseville began by reporting that three men were suspected of theft in one of the Apple stores in a local mall. They quickly fled the store at around 2 p.m., and when officers arrived, witnesses were able to describe the vehicle.

Shortly after this, the police began to pursue the vehicle that was believed to have the three men inside. They headed to Riverside Avenue off Interstate 80, but that’s where things went wrong for some innocent drivers.

The men’s vehicle struck a big rig, and then they went on to hit an SUV. The car went off into the intersection following the second collision, but that didn’t stop the suspects. The police reported that they exited the vehicle and ran, attempting to escape.

They entered a woman’s backyard, and she began to scream to let the police know that they were there. The three men were arrested shortly thereafter. The men are suspected in four out of five robberies that took place and may be held liable for the crashes that occurred as well.

It’s important for people in collisions as a result of unusual circumstances to hold those responsible accountable. In this case, it’s questionable as to whether the pursuit caused the collisions or if the men would have caused them regardless.
