A speeding driver who led CHP officers on a pursuit Wednesday night wound up crashing at a transition ramp along a freeway, officials said.
The incident began around 7:45 p.m. when a CHP officer tried pull over a driver in the Kearny Mesa area for speeding.
Instead of stopping, the driver sped off, heading eastbound on State Route 52 towards Santee. The driver then U-turned near Mast Boulevard and headed west on SR-52, officials said, again refusing to stop.
As CHP officers pursued the driver on the ground, an SDPD helicopter assisted in the pursuit by air.
A short time later, the driver crashed at the transition ramp from SR-52 to southbound Interstate 5 near University City.
The driver was taken into custody. No injuries were reported.
CHP is investigating the incident. No further details were immediately available.
