Officer Injured After High-Speed Chase



    A man was arrested Monday morning after leading police on a chase that resulted in an officer crashing and being injured, according to officials.

    The officer attempted to pull a driver over who failed to stop when the plates of the vehicle were confirmed as stolen. The suspect then led officers on a chase through southbound I-5 to state Route 54.

    The suspect and officer then crashed into a concrete wall. The man fled the scene, but police were able to detain him.

    Officials said the Coronado Police officer involved in the crash was in pain, so they took him to the hospital. His name and injuries have yet to be released, though officials say his injuries are not life-threatening.
