The chase happened after midnight when the driver failed to stop as police tried to pull him over for driving without headlights on.
"One of our officers was trying to initiate a traffic stop on a vehicle that was driving without its lights," said Sgt. John Harberth of the San Diego Police Department. "The vehicle took off on the officer, sped down L Street, ran several stop signs, actually rear-ended another vehicle, turned around and came down eastbound on Imperial where both the driver and the passenger ended up bailing from the car."
The teen, along with another juvenile, jumped out of car while on the 3100 block of Imperial Avenue and fled towards some homes, according to a source.
The car, which was left with the engine on, rolled down the street before crashing into a fence.
Police used a helicopter and a K-9 unit to search for the teens, according to a source.
The driver is currently being held in Juvenile Hall and is facing felony evasion, hit-and-run and curfew violation charges.
