SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A motorist who fled from a traffic stop in a Lomita-area neighborhood Monday led a motorcycle officer on a brief road chase before crashing the SUV he was driving and escaping on foot.
The officer pulled over the vehicle near Skyline Park shortly before 11 a.m. due to a cracked windshield and was walking up to it when the driver sped off, according to San Diego police Detective Gary Hassen.
The officer gave chase, and moments later heard a crash, Hassen said. Arriving in the 100 block of Noeline Way, the officer saw the SUV overturned and abandoned in the roadway, near a damaged parked vehicle.
No injuries were reported. In a nearby back yard, however, police found a blood trail that may have been left by the fleeing man. He was described as a bald, roughly 5-foot-9-inch, 250-pound Asian or Latino, wearing beige pants and a black shirt.
