Eight people took off running after a car they were riding in crashed into some bushes in east-central Fresno around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, said Fresno police Sgt. Jaime Rios.
The individuals appear to be 15 or 16 years old, Rios said. A law enforcement helicopter was watching them overhead at nearby Hammond and Helm avenues as police arrived on scene. Around 5 p.m., Rios said the individuals were being detained and questioned. It was not yet known what caused the crash.
