Teens arrested after High Speed Chase
Two young men were arrested by Placer County Sheriff’s deputies early Sunday morning after they crashed the stolen vehicle they were driving at speeds of more than 130 miles per hour throughout Auburn.
Driver Evan Myles Bogovich, 19, of Folsom, was behind the wheel of a stolen Nissan 250SX when it passed a deputy at a high rate of speed on Highway 49, near Luther Road at 4:20 a.m. The deputy began pursuing the car, which entered westbound Interstate 80. Bogovich exited the freeway at Highway 193, then got back onto Interstate 80 eastbound. The vehicle traveled at speeds of 120-130 miles per hour throughout the pursuit.
Deputies followed the convertible as it drove through Auburn and eventually exited onto Foresthill Road. The pursuit traveled across the Foresthill Bridge, then down Old Foresthill Road to the confluence area. Once deputies got to the confluence area, they found the unoccupied Nissan crashed into a cement wall on the west side of the bridge crossing the American River’s north fork.
Below the bridge, deputies found Bogovich and passenger Kyle Joseph Wiley, 18, of North Highlands, hiding behind a pillar. Both were taken into custody and transported for medical clearance. Neither man sustained injuries. Bogovich had in his possession a shaved key that is commonly used for stealing cars.
The vehicle had been stolen from a home in Nevada County. Bogovich and Wiley were booked at the Placer County Jail in Auburn. Bogovich was charged with reckless driving, evading a peace officer, vehicle theft, possession of burglary tools and obstruction. Wiley was charged with obstructing an investigation.
