CHULA VISTA, Calif. (KGTV) - Two people were taken into custody by Border Patrol agents after a pursuit that ended with a car pinned in the middle of a Chula Vista street.

The pursuit that reportedly began on southbound state Route 67 in the Poway area ended in the South Bay just before 11 p.m. Tuesday.

10News learned Border Patrol agents were in pursuit of a white station wagon for unknown reasons. The station wagon, according to dispatchers, rammed patrol vehicles during the chase.

The wagon went from southbound SR-67 to westbound I-8, and then onto southbound SR-125. Agents and a helicopter from above followed as the station wagon transitioned to westbound SR-54, and then onto southbound I-805.

After the station wagon exited onto Telegraph Canyon Road in Chula Vista, witnesses told 10News two unmarked Border Patrol cars were able to ram the vehicle, pinning it at L Street.

Agents took two people in custody, but Border Patrol officials did not offer any further information on the chase or the two arrestees.

No injuries were reported.
