    Police Pursuit Ends in El Cajon
    El Cajon Police perform an aggressive maneuver to stop a truck during a chase.

    A white pick-up truck led police on a chase through the streets of El Cajon Thursday.

    Several police cars were chasing the truck, but the driver refused to stop. At one point, two cruisers cornered the truck. The truck drove onto the sidewalk, shattering one of its windows, and kept going.

    Minutes later, a cruiser ran into the side of the truck, trying to slow it down.

    The pursuit ended just before 6 p.m. on the ramp to westbound Interstate 8 from El Cajon Boulevard. The driver came out of the truck with his hands in the air. Officers handcuffed the man and took him into custody.

    It’s unclear why police were pursuing the man in the first place.
