High Speed Chase Ends In Crash

Suspects Vehicle Linked To Car Burglaries

A pickup truck being chased by police overturned in Chula Vista early Tuesday, injuring two suspected burglars inside, authorities said.

The two suspects, whose names were unavailable after the roughly 4:20 a.m. crash, were taken to a hospital for injuries considered non-life-threatening, according to San Diego police Sgt. Garry Collins.

Police started pursuing the Dodge Ram on Servando Avenue in San Ysidro at 4:18 a.m., because it matched the description of a vehicle linked to recent car burglaries in the area, Collins said.

The driver of the Dodge sped up and wound through city streets until he crashed at 4:21 a.m. as he tried to get on northbound Interstate 5 via the L Street onramp, he said.
