Driver Fleeing Police Pursuit Smashes into Santa Maria City Bus

SANTA MARIA, CA (January 28, 2020) –  A driver who was fleeing police pursuit crashed into a Santa Maria city bus in the afternoon on Monday. The January 27 incident occurred on Union Valley Parkway and Orcutt Road.

The time was roughly a little before 1:30 p.m., according to Santa Maria Police.

Reports say the incident began when authorities received a call around 11:30 a.m. from a driver who was asking for help, and also not making sense. According to police, they attempted to find the driver, but they described him as not complying.

Police located the driver and attempted to pull him over, but the driver would not stop, and he drove away.

Police tried to contact the driver again by phone. They also received calls from witnesses who were reporting seeing driving that was erratic, a narrow miss of striking a pedestrian, and what may have been a hit-and-run incident.

Police again located the driver and attempted to stop him, but he left. The suspect driver went onto Highway 101, and again into Santa Maria where, reports say, he collided with a city bus.

The driver attempted to flee the scene, but officers apprehended him. The suspect driver was identified only as 30 years old. His name and city of residence have not been reported.

Two people were hurt in the incident, suffering injuries that were described as minor. The identities of the two people have not been reported. It is not known where they were when injured.

Investigators are collecting evidence and information regarding the incident.
