SAN DIEGO (CNS) - An alleged red-light runner who refused to pull over for police in City Heights Thursday led officers on a chase that ended with a crash.
The pursuit began shortly after noon, when the man ran a red light in the 5200 block of El Cajon Boulevard, according to San Diego police.
When an officer tried to pull him over, the driver sped to the south, then to the east and back north on several nearby streets. After about seven minutes, he crashed the gray Toyota sedan he was driving into two other vehicles in the 4900 block of University Avenue, public-affairs Officer Mark Herring said.
Officers surrounded the car with their guns drawn. After several minutes, he climbed out a passenger-side door and surrendered, Herring said.
The suspect, whose name was withheld pending booking, was taken to UCSD Medical Center for treatment of undisclosed injuries.
A section of University was closed for about 90 minutes to accommodate police.
