Suspects drive stolen truck into golf course lake while evading police

A man and woman were detained by the California Highway Patrol after a stolen truck pursuit ended in a lake at the 9th hole of Tahquitz Creek Golf Course in Palm Springs.

Police said the unusual scene happened just before 9 a.m. Tuesday when the pair crashed through a gate on Sonora Road, eventually ending up in the lake.

They both made it out of the truck safely and CHP officers were investigating the incident.

Authorities brought in a tow truck company to remove the truck from the water.

KESQ and CBS Local 2 are working to confirm more information regarding the pursuit and charges the two are facing. We’ll deliver more details as soon as we have them.
