SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A motorist who fled a traffic accident in City Heights Tuesday led police on a roughly 20-minute pursuit that ended with his arrest.

Officers began chasing the hit-and-run driver around Fairmount Avenue and Landis Street shortly before 5:30 p.m., according to San Diego police.

The man fled to the east and north for about mile before turning into a gas station at 54th Street and University Avenue, where he pulled to a stop and got out of his car with his hands over his head. Patrol personnel took him into custody without further incident.

The suspect's name was not immediately available.

No injuries were reported, Officer John Buttle said.
