Police chase ends with messy crash, 3 in custody

Posted: Updated:

CHULA VISTA (CBS 8)- Three people are in custody after a police chase in the South Bay ended with their car flying off the freeway and into a ditch.

The pursuit started at 9:58pm Thursday night on Highway 54 in National City.  San Diego Police followed the suspects as they criss-crossed the I-5 and returned to eastbound Hwy 54 before crashing near Highland Ave.

Police say two Hispanic men, a woman, and a dog were inside the vehicle. One of the men was trapped in the wreckage and emergency crews had to cut the top of the car off to get him out.

All three suspects were rushed to UCSD Medical Center to be examined for their injuries.

It's unclear why the police were chasing the suspect vehicle in the first place.
