    San Diego police say a detective tried to stop a vehicle near Miramar Road and Carroll Road when the driver sped off.

    The police helicopter was overhead along with several patrol officers on the ground according to a police spokesperson.

    When the suspect driver took off, he lost control and flipped the vehicle onto its roof.

    San Diego Fire-Rescue responded and used a gurney to move a man from the back of the patrol car into a waiting ambulance.

    Police slowly redirected traffic along Miramar Road using the westbound lanes. Even so, there was a long backup for eastbound traffic.

    Miramar Road will be closed between Dowdy Road and Distribution Avenue for several hours, police advise.
