Police say a man accidently got shot by a passenger in his car after a police chase.

Woops! A man who refused to pull over for a traffic stop on Espee Street had to be treated for a minor gunshot wound to his backside. But not because of the police fired at him. The BPD says officers tried to pull over 25-year-old Jose Galvan late last night, but he led them on a pursuit through East Bakersfield and then crashed into a tree on Oswell Street near Bernard. If that wasn’t bad enough, Galvan was hit when a firearm was accidentally discharged by one of two passengers in the vehicle, where a second, loaded gun was also found. With friends like that… Who needs enemy’s?
