Truck veers toward sheriff’s vehicle in bizarre Capay Valley incident

Two as-yet-unidentified men face charges of assault with a deadly weapon after allegedly driving their vehicle at a Yolo County sheriff deputy’s cruiser — twice — on Wednesday in the Capay Valley.

Sheriff’s spokesman Mark Persons said the incident occurred at about 12:15 p.m. as the deputy was patrolling the Guinda area. As he traveled eastbound, he noticed a westbound white truck drifting into his traffic lane.

The deputy veered to avoid a collision and attempted to pull over the truck, which began weaving back and forth on the two-lane highway at speeds over 90 mph, according to Persons.

“For safety reasons, the pursuit was terminated and the (suspect) vehicle continued westbound on Highway 16,” Persons said. The deputy lost sight of the truck, but spotted it again a short time later, heading toward him with severe front-end damage.

The car again veered into the deputy’s lane, “which appeared to be an attempt to strike the deputy’s vehicle,” Persons said. The deputy turned around a second time to pursue the truck, only to find it parked in an orchard near Nichols Park, unoccupied and with its airbags deployed.

A search for the truck’s two occupants ensued, involving assistance from the Yolo Aero Squadron and California Highway Patrol air and ground units before being called off at about 4:30 p.m., Persons said.

Sheriff’s officials declined to release the name of the deputy who was involved in the incident.

The investigation into the identities of the two suspects remains underway. Anyone with information is asked to call the Yolo County Sheriff’s Department at 530-668-5280.
