What started as a simple traffic stop for a missing tail light escalated into a high-speed pursuit Thursday night.

The chase started around 9:30 p.m. When the pickup truck refused to pull over, San Diego County sheriff’s deputies chased the driver through Escondido.

The chase hit speeds of 60 mph on residential streets, according to sheriff’s officials.

The pursuit ended at Juniper and Felicita when the truck crashed into three parked cars. The suspect managed to run two blocks before he was captured.

NBC 7’s cameras were rolling as the driver was taken away in handcuffs. He has been identified as Charles Cabrerra, 54, of Escondido.

A female passenger in Cabrerra’s truck was taken to Palomar Medical Center West with non-life-threatening injuries, according to officials.
