A driver being pursued by San Diego police after an undercover drug bust ran into three cars Tuesday night before being arrested.

The incident happened around 6:30 near the intersection of 41st and Wightman.

Police said they were investigating the man for drugs when he took off down the street in his car, eventually smashing into three other cars.

The first car he hit had a 10-year-old girl and her mother inside. The impact ripped off the bumper, but despite the damage, both walked away, with the young girl only complaining of back pain.

Seconds later, officers said the suspect slammed into two more cars with his black SUV.

Police said the suspect then got out of his SUV in a nearby alley and rain onto the 15 freeway.

They eventually caught up to him and arrested him.
