CHULA VISTA (CNS) - A motorist who refused to yield to police for a traffic violation on a South Bay street Wednesday led officers on a brief, high-speed freeway chase that ended with the driver's arrest just past the international line in Baja California.
The pursuit began in the 600 block of E Street in Chula Vista about 11:55 a.m., police Capt. Gary Wedge said.
Reaching speeds in excess of 100 mph, the fleeing driver led officers to the north on Interstate 5, to the east on State Route 54 and to the south on I-805, according to Wedge.
Near the U.S.-Mexico border, the speeding motorist ran over a tire-flattening spike strip laid across traffic lanes by Customs personnel. Still, the driver failed to stop and sped through the San Ysidro Port of Entry into Tijuana at 12:02 p.m., the captain said.
Moments later, Mexican authorities took the motorist into custody. The suspect's name was not immediately available.
