Chase Ends in Crash in Encinitas

A woman was arrested after leading police on a chase that ended in a crash in North County early Thursday. 

California Highway Patrol officers spotted what was believed to be a stolen car on Interstate 5 near the La Costa Avenue exit and attempted to pull the driver over. 

The woman behind the wheel did not stop and instead led officers on a chase southbound towards Encinitas.

The chase exited on Leucadia Boulevard and came to a close when the driver crashed into a curb, CHP said. 

The woman was handcuffed and placed into the back of a patrol car. It is not clear what charges she will be facing. 

A man in the passenger's seat was placed into the back of an ambulance. His injuries were not known.
