A woman was taken into custody by the California Highway Patrol after she was spotted driving her Honda Sedan at 100 mph on the eastbound lanes of the Bay Bridge in San Francisco. The incident occurred just before 4 a.m. on Tuesday, and the woman was found traveling in the wrong direction with two children in the car.
The officer who saw the woman driving the wrong way on the bridge was from the CHP San Francisco office. He immediately called for backup as the woman was risking her life and other drivers' lives. An officer positioned at the Treasure Island tunnel responded to the call and tried to intercept the vehicle. However, the woman tried to pass the officer and kept driving west on the bridge's eastbound lanes.
The officer then tried to stop the woman by ramming her car to disable it, but the woman managed to turn her vehicle around and start driving east on the bridge's eastbound lanes towards Oakland. The officer tried to stop her again using a tip maneuver, but it didn't work. The woman continued to drive at high speed of 100 mph and eventually got off the freeway at 98th Avenue.
The woman then stopped at a San Leandro residence and ran towards the doorway. After a brief standoff, she was taken into custody by the police. It was later found that two children, aged 6 and 8, were in the back of the vehicle at the time of the incident. Although the children were taken to the hospital for precautionary measures, they were not injured.
The woman was arrested at 4:27 a.m. for various charges, including child endangerment. She was taken to the hospital for precautionary measures, but no injuries were reported. The driver is still in the hospital, according to the police. She was identified as a woman born in 1989 and related to the children in the back of the car.
The incident is a reminder of the importance of safe driving, especially when children are in the car. The woman put her life, the lives of her children, and the lives of other drivers on the road in danger. The CHP officers acted quickly and efficiently to bring the woman into custody and prevent further harm. The incident serves as a warning to all drivers to prioritize safety on the road.
