CHP Officers Pursue Pickup Truck

California Highway Patrol officers are chasing a suspected DUI driver on Interstate 8 in El Cajon Wednesday evening.

The CHP says an officer tried to pull over the driver of a black Toyota pickup, who they believe is driving under the influence.

However, the suspect refused to stop and continued westbound on I-8. Other CHP units soon joined the chase.

At about 5:40 p.m., the driver was going 50 to 60 miles per hour on the freeway near Fletcher Parkway, the CHP says.

The driver was taken into custody about 15 minutes later at 59th Street and El Cajon Boulevard.
