SAN DIEGO, Calif. (CBS 8) - A man is in the hospital Friday morning after leading police on a high speed chase and crashing his car into a light post in La Mesa.

It all started just before 2:30 a.m. Friday morning when an officer noticed the car speeding and driving the wrong way on Market Street downtown.

A police helicopter then spotted the car driving recklessly on Highway 94, reaching speeds up to 90 miles-per-hour.

Police units caught up with the car on Mission Gorge Road, but the driver failed to stop and crashed.

The driver suffered minor injuries.

There was an empty beer can inside his car and he's being investigated for possibly driving under the influence.
