HESPERIA, Calif. (VVNG.com) — San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies were involved in a high-speed chase with a 31-year-old woman suspected of driving a stolen truck here Monday.

It happened on, October 8, 2018, at about 11:20 am, when multiple marked patrol sheriff’s vehicles were seen pursuing a black Ford F150 truck southbound on 7th Street in Old Town Victorville.

The female driver, identified as Rebecca Lynn Shaw failed to yield to lights and sirens as she continued to speed away from police.

The dangerous pursuit continued eastbound onto Green Tree Blvd. where the suspect crashed into a red older model Ford pick-up truck driven by Andrew Jennings.

Victor Valley News member, Brookey Bee, said she was very shaken up after the truck almost crashed into her vehicle with her children inside. “I heard her breaks screeching coming at me and I had to run the red light on Hesperia Rd. & Green Tree, she missed me by seconds and hit the truck next to me,” stated Bee.

No injuries were reported in that crash.

Shaw continued evading deputies and eventually made her way southbound on Hesperia Road and into the City of Hesperia.
