Suspected Bay Area car thief impaled on fence

A man fleeing Vallejo police impaled his leg while trying to jump a fence and required medical assistance to get down, authorities said.

An officer spotted a stolen 2018 Infiniti Q50 traveling on Tennessee Street near Vervais Avenue in the early morning hours of Oct. 16, according to a social media post by the Vallejo Police Department. When the officer tried to pull the car over, police said it accelerated away – kicking off a high-speed chase.

The vehicle eventually stopped near the Cal Maritime campus and authorities said two men jumped out and took off running toward the college’s gated dorms.

Both men, according to police, attempted to climb over the fence – but only the passenger made it. The vehicle’s driver wasn’t so lucky.

“The Vallejo Fire Department and Medic Ambulance arrived and successfully removed the driver’s leg from the security spike,” police stated. “He was then transported to a local hospital for medical clearance before incarceration.”

The other suspect got away.
