ESCONDIDO (CNS) - A stolen car crashed into a car wash Sunday, following a police chase that encompassed an entire lap around Escondido.

When officers attempted to pull over the vehicle, the driver "immediately took off," Olson said.
The suspect led police on a pursuit for about 10-15 minutes.
"He basically did an entire lap around our city," Olson aid.
The chase ended with a crash into a car wash at South Centre City Parkway and West 9th Avenue.
