A Salinas man was arrested Tuesday morning after he allegedly rammed a State Parks vehicle before leading officers on a high-speed pursuit.

Around 10 a.m., California State Parks officers responded to a call for assistance, and one of the officers’ cars vehicles was rammed by the suspect vehicle, according to the CHP.

The suspect, identified as 30-year-old Miguel Vasquez, drove at speeds up to 100 mph from northbound Highway 101 near Santa Rosa Road to Highway 101 north of Highway 154 in the Twin Oaks area, where a spike strip was deployed to stop the car, according to the CHP.

Vasquez reportedly drove one more mile before he yielded to officers and was arrested.

No one was injured during the incident.
