A man was taken into police custody after a pursuit through Southcrest ended in a crash, officials said.

San Diego police officers said when they attempted to pull over a red SUV around 10:30 p.m., the driver refused to yield.

A pursuit began on Interstate 805 and headed south near State Route 94.

The pursuit ended a couple minutes later when the SUV got onto 43rd St because police say it was too dangerous to follow him on city streets.

When the SUV hit a tree and a mailbox behind the Northgate market in the 1400-block of 43rd Street, the driver fled on foot, officials said.

The engine of the SUV was left running.

Officers later found the driver still in the area around 11:20 p.m.
