ELK GROVE, CA - A man's attempt to evade police was cut short by a funeral chapel sign early Monday morning.
According to officer Chris Trim with the Elk Grove Police Department, police attempted to stop a speeding Chevy truck on Elk Grove Blvd. near Elk Grove Florin Rd. around 12:34 a.m. But instead of yielding, the driver fled east on Elk Grove Blvd., crossed the center median and crashed into several fixed objects, including the Elk Grove Funeral Chapel sign, bringing the pursuit to a close.
The officers apprehended the truck driver, Alex Hernandez, 28, of Sacramento, who displayed "objective signs of impairment," according to Trim.
Hernandez was taken to a local hospital for treatment, medically cleared, and booked into the Sacramento main jail.
