RPD Seeks Driver Who Fled After Crash Off Highway 273

A well armed man fleeing police crashed a car in South Redding, starting a fire, then fled on foot and remains at large. A little before 11 O’clock Monday night an RPD Officer saw the car traveling fast on Highway 273, and he went after it with lights and siren blazing. The car ran a red light as it turned onto Westside Road and was northbound when it ran off the roadway at Branstetter, struck a chainlink fence and a signal box, and started a small grass fire. The driver took off running and was not found. His identity is not known. Redding Firefighters quickly put the fire out. In the car, officers reported finding a loaded AR-15 style rifle, ammo and drugs.
