Two brothers, on the run from the California Highway Patrol, were tased and taken into custody in Lemon Grove.

The CHP spotted the car going 75 mph on city streets around 1 a.m. and began the pursuit.

As the vehicle approached the area of Woodrow Avenue, the officer performed a PIT maneuver on the vehicle.

The suspect vehicle crashed into a parked sedan, but did not appear to cause any damage.

The suspects, identified by the CHP as brothers, were tasered and taken into custody.

The driver was transported to Grossmont Hospital for a DUI evaluation.

Because an officer discovered what looks like an oil dipstick in the car’s ignition, the CHP is checking to see if the vehicle is stolen.
