The accident happened sometime after 10:35 am. Stockton Police had received an alert about an armed robbery attempt at a Costco in Lodi. The vehicle reportedly crashed into another one in the parking lot of the Costco, then fled the scene. Around 10:45 am a motorist on Hammer Lane and Holman Road reported someone in a vehicle had brandished a weapon, and the description matched the vehicle involved in the robbery attempt.
Officers located the vehicle traveling west on Hammer Lane near West Lane and attempted to stop the vehicle. The vehicle, described as a gray Ford Focus, attempted to flee from officers and collided with two other cars and a cyclist at the intersection of Hammer Lane and Alexandria Place, then rolled over onto its roof.
Two occupants inside the Ford Focus were pronounced dead at the scene after being pinned inside the car. The remaining occupant was transported to a hospital, but their condition is unknown. The cyclist and the occupants of the other two vehicles were treated for minor to moderate injuries. The accident remains under investigation to determine cause and liability.
