    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.
