Suspect arrested after police pursuit shuts down I-8 in El Cajon

Posted: Updated:

EL CAJON (CNS) - A reckless driver led California Highway Patrol officers on a pursuit from an area east of Alpine to El Cajon Wednesday morning.

Officers attempted to stop the silver Nissan Pathfinder on westbound Interstate 8 near Willows Road shortly after 7 a.m., but the driver sped off, according to the CHP.

The suspect continued along the freeway, but eventually ran over a spike strip laid down by officers near Greenfield Drive in El Cajon, authorities said.

The SUV came to a stop near North Second Street, and its occupants were taken into custody.

Westbound Interstate 8 was briefly closed at North Second Street but was later reopened, according to Caltrans.
