Salinas, California – Injuries were reported after a chase ended in a 16-year-old driver crashing into a restaurant in the area of Main Street and Stephanie Drive in Salinas Thursday night.

According to authorities, the teen was driving recklessly in the area of South Main Street and Acacia Street just after 8 p.m. November 19.

A Salinas police officer tried to stop the teen but he fled traveling south on Main Street. Police pursued the vehicle and shortly after, the teen’s vehicle rear-ended another car near Main Street and Stephanie Drive.

The impact caused the teen to lose control and his vehicle jumped the curb. The vehicle continued and it crashed through a sign, before traveling through a grassy area and striking diners who were eating inside a tent set up outside the Gino’s Restaurant.

The victims sustained minor to serious injuries, but authorities do not believe there were any life-threatening injuries.

The involved driver tried to flee on foot but was caught and detained.

The incident is under investigation.
