VACAVILLE — Two vehicle theft suspects ended up in the hospital after crashing a reportedly stolen vehicle.

Police were alerted to suspicious activity around 4 p.m. Tuesday in the Browns Valley area. The caller provided the license plate number. That car came back stolen out of Rocklin on Monday, said Sgt. Steve Carey.

The vehicle was soon spotted driving in the area of Alison and Elmira drives and a pursuit started. The vehicle ended up turning into an apartment complex on the 500 block of Elmira Drive, Carey said. The vehicle eventually hit a tree in the rear of the complex and the male driver bolted, Carey said.

He was eventually caught in a backyard on the 300 block of Saybrook Drive, Carey said. He sustained injuries during the crash or pursuit and was taken to a local hospital. The female sustained a leg injury and was also transported to a local hospital, where she remained as of press time, Carey said.

Danielle Foster, 18, of Rocklin, was arrested on suspicion of vehicle theft and for an alleged probation violation.

Randy Gilbertson, 22, was arrested on suspicion of felony evading while causing injury to a passenger, and vehicle theft. Carey said he is also suspected of being a parolee-at-large out of Butte County and having a warrant out of Yolo County.
