BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — A man and a woman have been arrested after an alleged stolen car ran into an unmarked patrol car.

According to CHP, around 9 a.m., the Auto Theft Task Force spotted an alleged stolen car at Panama Lane and Colony Street in South Bakersfield. The car was occupied by a Hispanic man and woman. When the task force attempted to pull over the car, the car hit the unmarked patrol vehicle. The alleged stolen car was not pursued by CHP.
