San Jose: Man driving stolen car dies after CHP chase exceeding 100 mph

After nearly 30 minutes in the San Jose area, the driver tried to exit 280 at the Winchester Boulevard exit, Lee said. The driver maintained speeds of 100 mph during the chase and cut off drivers throughout, Lee said. There was also a female passenger from Los Banos riding in the stolen Honda, estimated to be 18 years old, CHP Officer Ross Lee said. The driver did not stop and began driving faster than 100 mph, Lee said. The first CHP vehicle behind the Honda clipped a sign while getting off 280 and ended up with a cracked windshield, Lee said.

During the pursuit, a CHP vehicle struck the curb and a wrong-way sign, which shattered the patrol car's windshield. Cox says officers first gave chase because the car was driving at times, as fast as 125 mph. Jeremy Cox says it appeared the driver was intentionally trying to ram other cars on the road before he lost control and crashed.
