REDDING, Calif. - Redding Police officials report an attempted traffic stop led to a single-vehicle collision at the intersection of Cypress Avenue in Redding. 

Officials say that on Friday, May 8 just before 11 p.m., Redding Police officers responded to the 2900 block of Lanning Avenue on the report of a disturbance.

As officers arrived in the area, they say they observed a white Volkswagen sedan leaving the location. Officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle, but it fled from officers in a reckless manner at a high rate of speed.

Police say that based on numerous factors, officers did not give chase to the vehicle. The Volkswagen was later found to be involved in a single-vehicle traffic collision at the intersection of Cypress Avenue and the southbound Interstate 5 on-ramp.

RPD Officers located Christian Infante, 20, of Redding, and 3 juvenile females at the scene of the collision. All four subjects were later transported to Mercy Medical Center and treated for minor injuries.

Police say the investigation of this collision is on-going. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Redding Police Department at (530)225-4200.
