Driver Injured in Crash During CHP Pursuit on I-15, SR-78

A driver attempting to evade police crashed on State Route 78, CHP officials said

A police pursuit along southbound Interstate 15 ended with the driver injured when the vehicle rolled, according to CHP spokesperson James Bettencourt.

The pursuit began at 12:09 p.m. and traveled along northbound I-15 to Fallbrook before switching directions and heading southbound on the same highway.

The suspect vehicle crashed near the El Norte exit from State Route 78.

“The driver took the turn way too fast,” CHP Officer Nilsen said. “Sure enough, the vehicle went off the left-hand side of the transition road and ended up rolling down the hillside.”

The driver was unconscious and has been transported to a nearby hospital.

She has not been identified but was described as in her 40s.

She was not wearing a seatbelt.
