OAKLAND, Calif. (KTVU/AP) - The body of a man who allegedly rammed his pickup through a perimeter gate at the Oakland International Airport while fleeing a sheriff's deputy and then jumped into the bay was found Monday five miles north of the terminal gate, officials said.
Alameda County Sheriff's Sgt. Ray Kelly said it is the same man, but he didn't immediately identify him.
On Sunday, a pursuit began around noon when a deputy tried to pull over the man's vehicle for running a stop sign, Kelly said.
The pickup went down a service road, blew through the gate at 50 mph, sped over dirt trails along the perimeter and at one point got onto a taxiway, Kelly said.
The man was last seen on foot running toward the bay, which runs along the airport's south runways. A dog also trailed a scent to the water.
