Minor charged in Fremont carjacking that ended in crash

A juvenile was arrested and charged for stealing a woman's vehicle and initiating a police chase, officials said.

Fremont police announced the new information Wednesday on Sunday's cross-county carjacking case that led to a boy being ejected from a vehicle.

The Alameda County District Attorney's Office charged the juvenile driver, a resident of Hayward, with two felony counts - including fleeing a pursuing police officer causing great bodily injury to a person, and possession of a stolen vehicle.

The driver was initially arrested with two other juveniles who were in the vehicle at the time of the collision. The two others were later released from custody and not criminally charged.

Officials revealed the driver, who crashed into an uninvolved vehicle, allegedly accosted the woman alone and not with the two other suspects. The woman was unable to identify any of the three juvenile suspects as being involved in the carjacking.
