Man, Teen Daughter in Pursuit Crash with Patrol Car

A 14-year-old girl was detained and identified the driver as her father, deputies said

Deputies say a man and a teenager bailed on foot after a high-speed pursuit ended in a collision with a patrol car Thursday night.

San Diego County sheriff’s deputies said a minor traffic violation led to a pursuit along State Route 54 around 9 p.m.

The pursuit ended near the Briarwood off-ramp after the suspect rammed the deputy’s vehicle, officials said.

Two suspects left the vehicle and fled on foot in the Bonita neighborhood south of SR 54.

San Diego police were called in to assist. Law enforcement officers canvassed the area with a K-9 unit, guns drawn.

The passenger was arrested but the male driver jumped a fence and evaded capture.

SDPD Lt. Paul Rorrison said citizens called to report someone running through yards.

A police helicopter searched the area by air and officers put the area on lock-down for a short time, while they searched for the man.

The person detained was later identified as a 14-year-old girl, deputies said.

She identified the male driver as her father according to deputies.

No other arrests were made. The deputy was uninjured.
