Two Hospitalized after Crash on Moore Road and Whitmore Avenue
Stanislaus County (May 25, 2022) – Tuesday afternoon, police arrested 35-year-old Shane Thomas in a hit-and-run crash and a vehicle theft involved on Moore Road and Whitmore Avenue.
Police said a stolen vehicle was located around 2:20 p.m. in Modesto on May 24. StanCATT members spotted the suspect while conducting surveillance in the area. They then followed him until he stopped at a gas station at Golden State Boulevard and Keyes Road in Keyes.
When StanCATT attempted to arrest Thomas, he fled in his car and hit two police vehicles near which deputies and officers stood, then drove north on Highway 99 and exited at Mitchell Road in Ceres.
More so, upon fleeing he crashed into an occupied vehicle at Moore Road and Whitmore Avenue. He then ran from the collision and attempted to hide in a nearby apartment complex.
A police dog helped apprehend him, injuring him in the process. Thomas continued resisting arrest as deputies took him into custody.
The two people in the vehicle were taken to the hospital as a precaution.
Currently, Thomas is booked on new preliminary charges including three counts of assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer, a pursuit resulting in injuries, fleeing a crash scene, and resisting arrest.
