SANTA ROSA, Calif. - An 18-year-old Santa Rosa man fled a California Highway Patrol stop and smashed into the back of an SUV carrying two adults and a child Saturday afternoon, the CHP announced on Facebook.
Marcus Burton, 18, was driving a Ford Mustang with its license plate covered with a sign stating "Will Run" when he collided with the SUV around 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
The driver reached speeds over 100 mph during the incident before it slammed into the SUV on Highway 101 near the Mendocino Avenue exit, the CHP said.
The three victims were transported to a nearby hospital and treated for minor to moderate injuries.
Burton's vehicle was involved in other incidents involving multiples agencies, said David Derutte, a CHP spokesman. "Nothing as extreme as yesterday," he added.
Burton was booked into Sonoma County jail on charges for evading police, evading police causing injury, and child endangerment, all felony charges.
Video of the harrowing incident, posted on Instagram, shows the mustang slamming into the SUV. It also shows the driver being arrested, as well as another male suspect who climbed out of the wrecked Mustang.
Derutte said the other passenger was a 17-year-old male who was released to his parents.
