Officer Jodie Beck of the Yuba Sutter Area CHP reports the Prius was heading northbound at around 6:04 a.m. on Sacramento Valley Boulevard, just north of Maddock Road.

Witnesses described seeing the stolen Prius drive at speeds of up to 80 to 90 mph before the driver hit a slight right turn and crashed into a large, parked crane.
