At one point it appeared the chase was going to end just before 6 p.m. when the driver pulled over on the side of the freeway but as officers surrounded the vehicle, the driver took off.

This pursuit started in San Mateo and headed over the San Mateo Bridge into Hayward. It then made its way over to Oakland and onto surface streets before getting on to I-580.

At this time authorities have not released information on why officers initiated the pursuit.
