Chase ends in crash in North Fresno

A man was in police custody Thursday morning after leading officers on a chase that ended in North Fresno.

The chase started around 5:30 a.m. Thursday. The driver of a silver Toyota pickup truck crashed at the Hwy. 41 onramp from Shaw Ave. then ran from police. He was later caught at Fresno St. and San Jose Ave.

At one point during the chase, the rear, driver's side tire came off of the truck. It is unknown if that was the cause of the driver to crash. The Hwy. 41 onramp from Shaw Ave. was closed to traffic as police waited for a tow truck to move the pickup.

It was not immediately known why the driver ran from police.
