Suspect Crashes Vehicle into Home, Flees

Law enforcement started a chase in unincorporated Escondido Monday when a suspect fled after slamming his vehicle into a home. 

The vehicle flew from the highway into the home in the 1700 block of the San Pasqual Valley Road around 6:40 p.m. Thursday. 

The driver immediately ran off, and inside the vehicle, California Highway Patrol officers found beer cans. Officials believe the driver may have been under the influence behind the wheel.

San Pasqual Valley Road -- also known as Highway 78 -- was closed in both directions while CHP pursued the suspect. They reopened the road around 7:20 p.m., but no one has been detained. 

It's unclear how much damage was done to the home.
