OAKLAND, Calif. - Five juveniles in an Audi were arrested early Friday after the California Highway Patrol said they were racing a Corvette at speeds of more than 130 mph and ended up crashing on Highway 24 in Oakland.
The CHP said among the five was a 17-year-old who was no licensed and was booked in connection with felony evading a police officer. No one was seriously injured, but the minors were taken to Highland Hospital as a precaution.
"Absolutely inexcusable driving behavior by a young teenager that held all his passengers lives dangerously in his hands while driving in a completely reckless manner," the CHP said in a Facebook post. "We are relieved this ended well with no injuries. Please think twice before driving like a maniac."
CHP officers spotted the Audi and the Corvette racing about 3:30 a.m. on westbound Highway 4 in Concord when the Audi, didn’t stop for the CHP and then went to Highway 242, Interstate Highway 680 and then into Highway 24, where the car crashed at the Highway 13 connector. The crash blocked lanes for two hours.
There is no word on what happened to the driver of the Corvette
