Two people were arrested after leading police on a chase and crashing their car in the Golden Hill area officials said.
San Diego Police tried to stop the man and woman in the East Village and question them about a series of car burglaries.
But, the suspects didn't pull over.
As they tried to get away from the officers, they crashed into the tree and wall at 19th and B Streets in Golden Hill.
The driver was taken to a nearby hospital with a broken collar bone. Officers say the passenger broke her arm, suffered internal injuries and a broken vertebrae.
The man was booked on several charges including suspicion of driving under the influence, felony evading and hit and run.
