The driver was identified as Aaron Sullivan, 39, from Antelope. It was learned that he was on active parole with an outstanding parole warrant for vehicle theft charges. He was arrested on charges of possession of stolen vehicle, parole violation, resisting/delaying a peace officer, driving on a suspended license and parole arrest warrant.
There are no outstanding suspects and the vehicle has been recovered. Assistance was provided by the California Highway Patrol, Nevada County Sheriff’s Office, and the Nevada City Police Department, the release said.
