An alleged gang member is arrested this evening by Chico Police after he fled the scene of a crash at the north end of Chico. Police say the accident happened about 6pm at the intersection of Eaton Road and the Esplanade. The driver of a white Toyota Corolla was hit by the alleged gang member, driving a four-door black sedan. The driver of the black sedan then fled the scene. Police captured the man and he was taken into custody, but not before other suspected gang members and family members of the other vehicle arrived on scene causing a confrontation. Police got the situation under control. Only minor injuries were reported as a result of the accident. Police are now searching the black sedan for evidence. The incident backed up traffic over the Highway 99 overpass.
