Police received a call about a possible failed robbery at about 9:15 p.m. A few minutes later, emergency personnel responded to a four-door sedan that crashed into the steel fence of a city yard on the northeast corner of Sixth Street and Tracy Boulevard.
The driver was taken to the hospital by ambulance. Police would not disclose the driver’s condition as of 11 p.m., and it’s unknown at this point whether the driver of the car is the suspect or potential victim in the crime. But according to Tracy police Chief Janet Theissen, the driver was somehow involved in the initially reported robbery.
As police taped off the scene around the accident, shutting down the street, police also searched a section of Sixth Street west of Tracy Boulevard with a K-9 unit.
As of 11 p.m., police were in contact with several witnesses, Theissen said, and were also searching for additional persons of interest in the incident and trying to piece together the precise events of the evening.
