Driver Arrested After High-Speed Chase Ends in Crash on Highway 101 in Sonoma County

A driver of a Ford Mustang was arrested on Saturday afternoon after leading California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers on a high-speed chase on Highway 101 in Sonoma County. The Mustang, traveling over 100 mph on the northbound lanes, refused to yield to officers during a traffic stop in Rohnert Park. The pursuit came to an end when the Mustang crashed into a Land Rover SUV around 1:30 p.m. in the area of Mendocino Avenue and Hwy 101 in Santa Rosa, according to CHP.

The driver of the Mustang, identified as 18-year-old Marcus Burton of Healdsburg, was taken into custody and booked into Sonoma County Jail. He sustained minor injuries and received medical treatment. The passenger in the Mustang, a 17-year-old boy, also suffered minor injuries and was released to his parents. The family of three in the Land Rover was transported to a nearby hospital for complaints of pain.

Video footage captured the moment of the crash, showing the Mustang rear-ending the Land Rover SUV. The Mustang’s license plate read “WILL RUN.” Authorities revealed that the Mustang had been involved in multiple chases over the past month, managing to evade capture until Saturday’s incident. Fortunately, no other drivers were injured in the crash.
