WOODLAND, CA - Three people were detained and questioned after a 20-mile car chase that ended in three crashes and shots fired, but investigators with the California Highway Patrol don't believe it was road rage.
"Something happened down there that lead to the cars traveling together up here," said Officer Ken Walters.
According to Walters, the two cars involved were a white Ford Focus and a red Nissan SUV.
During the investigation, officers learned shots were fired from the Nissan.
"We don't know how many rounds were fired. No one was hit. We recovered a handgun. It appears to be a nine-millimeter," Walters said.
The incident started in Sacramento on Interstate 80 and West El Camino Avenue. The cars traveled northbound on I-5 into Woodland. The drivers exited County Road 102 and headed onto southbound I-5.
