A high-speed police chase took place Tuesday night through at least five Bay Area cities. There were about 12 cruisers chasing a car just before 10 p.m. on westbound Interstate 80 at University Avenue in Berkeley.

The chase reached speeds of 100 mph and continued onto I-880 through Oakland and San Leandro. It ended at the Dumbarton Bridge in Newark, where officers arrested three people.

This all started before 10 p.m. Police believe two men in the car were armed and robbed a Shell station in Martinez. When officers spotted them in Orinda they went after them.

There were no injuries reported.
