It started around nine Thursday night when deputies spotted Lawrence Lucero driving on Wyandotte Avenue in Oroville.

Lucero had reportedly sped away 21 hours earlier after being pulled over by deputies.

Then, in Thursday night's encounter he sped off again, leading deputies on a chase from Oroville, down highway 70, and across to Gridley.

After losing sight of Lucero’s car on Larkin Road, one deputy lost control and slid off the roadway.

The patrol car was damaged but the deputy was not injured.

Lucero's car was found nearby but he was gone.

He remains on the loose.
