ANTIOCH -- A woman apparently wearing a wig to disguise herself led police on a brief vehicle pursuit Tuesday night, reaching Pittsburg before crashing the car and being captured, police said.

The suspect, Lisa St. Onge, 32, of Antioch, was treated for minor injuries at a hospital. No one else was seriously injured, police said.

Police said an officer located a stolen car being driven near 18th and A streets around 11:30 p.m. and attempted to pull the car over. St Onge instead fled onto Highway 4, heading eastbound toward Pittsburg, police said.

As she exited the freeway at Harbor Street, police said, she took the exit too fast, striking a guardrail and disabling the car. St. Onge fled the car on foot, but was caught immediately, police said; two passengers in the car did not attempt to flee.

St. Onge was taken to a hospital, treated and released, then taken to County Jail in Martinez. She was being held without bail Wednesday on suspicion of burglary, vehicle theft, evading police, and several other charges.

St. Onge also had a bench warrant for her arrest on an earlier charge; police said Wednesday she may have been wearing the wig to disguise herself.

The two passengers were not arrested.
