On Monday, December 4, 2017, at approximately 9:45 pm, deputies from the Rancho Cucamonga Police Department located a stolen vehicle near the intersection of Foothill Boulevard and Spruce Avenue. Deputies attempted a traffic stop on the vehicle; however, the driver Heather Grieser-Estrella, failed to yield and a vehicle pursuit ensued. Grieser-Estrella drove south on Etiwanda Avenue at speeds over 70 MPH and entered the westbound interstate 10 freeway. Grieser-Estrella again accelerated to speeds more than 100 MPH and veered in and out of lanes. Grieser-Estrella exited on Haven Avenue and struck a motorist on the rear driver side door. Grieser-Estrella's vehicle became disabled, and she was quickly taken into custody by pursuing units. The victim of the collision suffered minor injuries and was transported to a local hospital for treatment.
