A Fremont detective was injured today in Hayward while investigating a stolen vehicle.

A Fremont detective was injured this afternoon at approximately 2:10 p.m. while investigating an occupied stolen vehicle in the City of Hayward.  
Earlier today, Fremont detectives were actively investigating a stolen vehicle. The investigation led officers to the area of Broadmore Ave and Larchmont St in the City of Hayward.  Detectives attempted to stop the vehicle.  The female suspect driver reversed her vehicle and collided with an unmarked Fremont police car.  As this occurred, a female passenger fled from the suspect vehicle and began running.  A Fremont detective in a second vehicle got out of his car and gave chase.  The suspect vehicle continued to hit the police vehicles and eventually maneuvered her way out by hopping the curb and driving into a grassy area.  As she drove into the grassy area, she collided with both the Fremont detective and female suspect he was pursuing on foot.  The suspect vehicle then took off and left the scene.  A short vehicle pursuit was initiated which ended in the area of Austin Ave and Huntwood Ave.  For a second time, the suspect driver collided with an unmarked Fremont police vehicle. The vehicle was stopped and the driver was taken into custody.
The injured detective was transported to a hospital with a moderate injury.  The injured female suspect was transported to a hospital in stable condition.  At this point we have no outstanding suspects. 

We’d like to thank Hayward Police for their assistance today.
