 May 9, 2020     5:00 a.m.

Case Number: 20R028912

On May 8, 2020 at 10:43 p.m., Redding Police officers responded to the 2900 block of Lanning Avenue on the report of a disturbance.  As officers arrived to the area, they observed a white Volkswagen sedan leaving the location. Officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle, but it fled from officers in a reckless manner at a high rate of speed. Based on numerous factors, officers did not give chase to the vehicle. The Volkswagen was later found to be involved in a single vehicle traffic collision at the intersection of Cypress Avenue and the southbound Interstate 5 on-ramp.

RPD Officers located Christian Infante, 20 years of Redding, and 3 juvenile females at the scene of the collision. All four subjects were later transported to Mercy Medical Center and treated for minor injuries.

The investigation of this collision is on-going. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Redding Police Department at (530)225-4200.
