VISTA (CNS) - A 29-year-old man was in custody Thursday after allegedly leading deputies on a wild chase in Vista while at the wheel of a stolen car.
Miguel Magana was arrested at the end of a pursuit that began in the area of Vista Village Drive and Camino Patricia shortly before 5 p.m. Wednesday, according to San Diego County sheriff's Sgt. Paul Lacroix.
During the pursuit, Magana sideswiped a vehicle on westbound Hacienda Drive at Pomelo Drive before crashing into a second vehicle at South Melrose and Buena Vista drives, the sergeant said in a statement.
Magana and his passenger -- later identified as Roberto Saragosa, 25, -- both ran away following the second crash, Lacroix said.
A Sheriff's Department K-9 officer caught up with Magana and deputies found Saragosa at a Circle K convenience store at Watson Way and Shadowridge Drive, according to the sheriff's department.
Medics took Magana to Palomar Medical Center so he could be treated for crash injuries and dog bites, Lacroix said.
Saragosa was taken directly to the Vista jail, where Magana was also booked after he was seen by doctors. He faces charges related to auto theft, hit-and-run, evading police and obstruction, according to online jail records.
