Chula Vista Pursuit Involving Hit-and-Run Suspect Ends: CVPD

Chula Vista police were involved in a slow-speed pursuit near Brandywine and Olympic Parkway just before 6 a.m. Friday.

There were several patrol cars and a tow truck removing a damaged car.

The pursuit involved a hit-and-run incident, police said.

Officers said the suspect struck a car and then took off. The driver whose car was hit followed the suspect's vehicle. 

Once police got involved, they say the suspect tried to evade arrest but entered a cul-de-sac. At that point, police say the suspect rammed the back of a police vehicle.

Other police vehicles began to pursue the suspect on a slow-speed chase through side streets. 

When police deployed a spike strip, the suspect got out of the vehicle and attempted to run. 

He was taken into custody and transported to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening wounds suffered from a police dog.
