Multiple County High Speed Chase Ends in Woodland

On April 24, 2014 at approximately 5:10 am, Elijah Sterling Taylor, 21, of Oregon, was traveling southbound on Inter-state 5 at a high rate of speed, in a reported stolen Chevy pickup truck.

As Taylor approached the City of Williams, a California Highway Patrol Officer attempted to make a traffic stop.

Taylor failed to stop for the officer and accelerated to speeds of near 100 mph, as he approached Yolo County.

Taylor was weaving erratically and attempted to collide with several vehicles on the roadway in an attempt to evade law enforcement.
As the California Highway Patrol was preparing to deploy a spike strip near County Road 91, Taylor attempted to ram the patrol vehicle.

Missing the patrol vehicle, Taylor was able to avoid the spike strip where he continued southbound on Interstate 5, and exited at West Street, near Woodland.

Law enforcement discontinued the pursuit as Taylor entered Woodland, fearing for public safety.

Law enforcement began a search for the Chevy, which was located at 1226 West Street, where it was involved in a solo vehicle traffic collision. Taylor had fled the location on foot and law enforcement set up a perimeter to locate Taylor.

Taylor was located in the back yard of a nearby residence, hiding in a shed. West Sacramento Police Department had dispatched a K-9 Officer to the scene to assist with the search and was utilized in the apprehension of Taylor.

Taylor was booked into the Yolo County Jail on multiple charges including Possession of a stolen vehicle, assault with a deadly weapon against a police officer, evading law enforcement, resisting arrest, driving under the influence of a con-trolled substance, fleeing the scene of a traffic collision and driving while unlicensed.

Woodland California Highway Patrol is requesting that anyone who has any information in regards to Taylor’s actions, they are encouraged to contact the Woodland CHP Office. These actions can include possibly being struck or forced off the roadway as Taylor fled from law enforcement, observed Taylor’s acts of evasion or general observations of the events.

To contact Woodland CHP, please call (530) 662-4685 and speak with Officer Simpson or the Front Desk officer.
