Search for driver who led police on chase into National City

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Police are searching for a driver who led them on a high-speed pursuit across several local freeways, forcing temporary lane closures Tuesday morning.

Officers tried to pull over the driver of a green truck when he was speeding downtown traveling at rates, at times, as fast as 110 miles per hour.

The pursuit eventually reached SR-94 and then made it to Interstate 805 in National City, where officers used spike strips to stop the truck.

The driver, who CBS News 8 was told had outstanding warrants, ran off into the riverbed below the freeway.

His passenger was in custody.
