The driver of a Chrysler Sebring led authorities on a high-speed chase on Tuesday while trying to evade Galt police, according to a press release from the California Highway Patrol.

The chase ended with a rollover accident on the Highway 99 frontage road at Acampo and Peltier roads.

During the pursuit, the driver tried to pass the center divider, causing the vehicle to lose control, according to the report. The car continued across the southbound lanes onto the west shoulder, colliding with the perimeter fence.

The vehicle then continued across the frontage road and collided with a telephone pole on the west shoulder, coming to rest on its side, according to police.

The driver was transported to Lodi Memorial Hospital with major head trauma, while the passenger was taken to Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento with major internal injuries and head trauma, police said.

No further information was released and their status was not immediately known.
