Short pursuit leads to crash, suspect at large

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A suspect is at large Friday after a short police chase and crash in Skyline.

Police say they spotted two suspicious men in a vehicle around 7:30 a.m. near the intersection of Skyline Drive and Cardiff. Officers were about to run a check on the license plate when the car took off.

Police found the car a few block away.

"When they came around the corner the vehicle had already crashed into the pole, they got the driver in custody, he was injured, and they transported him to mercy," SDPD Lt. Steve Hutchinson said.

Police say the driver had a warrant for his arrest. He is facing multiple new charges once he gets out of the hospital.

The passenger was seen by witnesses running through the neighborhood. If you have any information, call police.
