High speed chase ends with crash in Balboa Park

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A high speed chase out of the Mountain View area comes to a crashing halt in Balboa Park.

It started around 10 p.m. Thursday when police tried to make a routine traffic stop in the 3600 block of Gilmore Street.

Authorities say instead of pulling over, the driver sped away on Interstate-15 at 100 miles an hour.

The pursuit ended when the suspect's vehicle spun out and crashed into the park at Pershing Dr. and Redwood St.

The driver got out and tried to run, but was arrested. Police are still trying to determine why he took off in the first place.

The suspect has been booked on felony evading charges.
