Driver crashes through Rock 'N' Roll Marathon barricade, arrested after pursuit

Posted: Updated:

MISSION BAY PARK (NEWS 8/CNS) - A driver ignored orders from a traffic officer at a road closure near the Rock 'N Roll Marathon Sunday, drove on to the marathon course and then was chased to Oceanside, where he crashed, ran and was arrested.

An officer saw the man's car on the course behind a person in a wheelchair and told him he could not be on the course.

Police chased the driver - identified as Misael Sandoval - for nearly 30 miles into Oceanside.

San Diego Police said no spectators or runners were injured during the incident, which began at 8:05 a.m. at the Sea World Drive interchange on Interstate 5, according to Sgt. Tom Sullivan.

The car was chased up the 5 Freeway, at speeds up to 80 miles per hour, before it rolled over and crashed into a white Expedition at about 8:29 a.m., Sullivan said.

Officers say Sandoval then ran up a hill where he was arrested with the help of a police dog.

Sandoval told officers he "wanted a rush." 

The driver of the other vehicle involved did not suffer major injuries but did complain of neck and back pain. 

That wasn't the only incident in the area of the marathon.

Just before 10 a.m., police say the driver of a Mustang also went through a barricaded area.

That driver is also accused of taking off when approached by an officer, but they were caught three minutes later and arrested for resisting arrest.

About 30,000 runners took place in the marathon, and extra security was in place because of the terrorist attacks in England.
