SAN FRANCISCO—The police pursuit of two armed robbery suspects driving down the 101 in San Francisco on Tuesday, November 22 ended with one of the suspects being killed.
The California Highway Patrol (CHP) began chasing the two suspects down the 101 at approximately 12:30 a.m. on Tuesday upon receiving a report from the San Francisco Police Department that they had been involved in an armed robbery.
The two suspects continued driving, clocking in at 100-miles-per-hour on the highway and 70-80-miles-per-hour on streets, until losing control and crashing into five parked cars and a yellow pole between Fremont Avenue and El Camino Real in Sunnyvale. The 18-year-old passenger involved in the car chase, whose name has not been released, was ejected from his seat and pronounced dead at the scene. The driver, Zain Dadabhai, 19, was arrested at the scene and booked on multiple charges, including vehicular manslaughter.
The Patio, a bar owned by Becca Jones, was relieved that the incident didn’t take place during closing hours.
“It would have been terrible probably. People would’ve been in their cars. Turned out okay I guess. Nobody was injured that we know,” Jones told ABC7.
The incident is currently under investigation by the SFPD.
