HAYWARD -- Three men arrested after a police pursuit ended in a one-car crash on Interstate 580 early Monday have been identified by police.
Michael Pulido, 21, Joseph Pulido, 19, and Timothy Ferman, 19, all are facing various weapons and evasion charges after leading officers on the chase just after midnight. The chase, which reached speeds topping 80 mph as it progressed north on I-880, then across Interstate 980 and back onto eastbound Interstate 580, ended when the trio's silver Toyota Camry crashed into a barrier near Park Boulevard, police said Tuesday.
Ferman is expected to be charged with obstructing a public officer; carrying a loaded firearm while committing a felony and in a public place; possession of a short-barreled shotgun; possession of a large-capacity magazine; manufacturing an assault rifle with the intent to sell; and obstructing, resisting and evading officers; all felonies. He is being held at Santa Rita Jail on $3 million bail, according to police.
Joseph Pulido is expected to be charged with evasion; assault with a deadly weapon; carrying a loaded firearm while committing a felony and in a public place; probation violation; and manufacturing an assault rifle with the intent to sell; police said. He was being held at Santa Rita Jail on $570,000 bail.
Michael Pulido is also expected to be charged with evading a peace officer; possession of a stolen firearm; possession of a concealed firearm by a criminal street gang; and possession of an assault rifle police said. His bail amount was not immediately available.
The investigation into the chase was still evolving, Stuart said, but police were exploring whether there is a connection between the Toyota Camry and a shooting earlier Sunday in Hayward. That shooting happened at about 3:30 p.m. on Tennyson Road at Calaroga Avenue and wounded a person sitting in a car, according to Hayward police Lt. Mark Stuart. That person is expected to survive.
