Two suspects were taken into custody after a high-speed chase on Interstate Highway 580 this morning in which a California Highway Patrol car overturned, a CHP spokeswoman said.

Officers spotted an Infiniti speeding east on I-580 near Isabel Avenue in Livermore at about 3:20 a.m., CHP spokeswoman Diana McDermott said.

When a CHP officer attempted to stop the car, the driver sped off, McDermott said.

A chase ensued, with the driver reaching speeds of 100 mph, she said. Two officers in a separate patrol car assisted in the pursuit.

The assisting patrol car hit an embankment during the chase and overturned near Altamont Pass Road in Livermore, causing minor injuries to both officers, McDermott said.

The first patrol car was able to pull over the Infiniti in the Stockton area at about 3:40 a.m. and the two suspects were taken into custody, McDermott said.

CHP is still investigating the incident.
