A man and woman allegedly stole a fire truck after seeing the door open and “thought, Hollywood,” before leading police on an hours-long chase through several California towns.
A Sacramento Metro Fire engine was stolen Saturday afternoon from the scene of a vegetation sire in the Rio Lina area, FOX 40 reported.
The unidentified man stole the truck, valued at about $1 million, in Rio Linda and picked up the woman outside her home about 1 miles away and a pursuit ensued, KCRAreported.
Several agencies pursued the stolen truck as it traveled nearly 100 miles across four counties and reportedly swerved into oncoming traffic several times.
“One driver, at a time, had a shirt completely covering their face except for their eyes, so it was hard to tell whether or not that was the female or the male,” said CHP Sgt. Brian Wittmer told reporters.
The chase came to an end two hours later on Highway 70 in Butte County where it was stopped by California Highway Police after spikes deployed pulled a tire off the truck.
