Multiple county high-speed chase ends with suspect crashing in creek

A Corning man was arrested Wednesday evening after leading police on a high-speed chase through Glenn and Colusa Counties, said the California Highway Patrol.

Herman Lee Cochran, Jr., 48, of Corning CA, was booked into the Colusa County Jail for the possession of a controlled substance, taking a vehicle without owner’s consent, and evading police with heedless disregard for safety. He was also booked for a warrant on violation of parole. Bail was set at $85,000.

The incident started when Corning Police Officers were searching for a burglary suspect and stopped Cochran on his bicycle. Cochran fled on foot, jumping into a running vehicle in a nearby driveway, and took officers on the chase, said the CHP.

At approximately 8:45 p.m., the Williams Area CHP took over the pursuit from the Willows Area CHP as it entered the town of Maxwell.

Topping at speeds over 90 MPH, Cochran traveled south on Highway 99W through the community of Maxwell and into the City of Williams. As Cochran entered Williams, he turned east onto E Street where he merged onto Interstate 5.

Police pursued the suspect into Arbuckle where Cochran led police through the town and out on country roads.

Cochran traveled south on Wildwood Road where he turned east onto Breuner Ave. Cochran then led police into private property through almond orchards and into a dry creek bed north of Wildwood Road before colliding into a portion of the bridge in the creek over Wildwood Road.

The vehicle became disabled due to the collision and was taken into custody without further incident.

Cochran was also found in possession of methamphetamine.
