VISTA, Calif. (KGTV) — Two people were arrested this week after a pursuit took authorities from Valley Center into unincorporated Escondido.

San Diego Sheriff's Department says the pursuit began just after 9 p.m. near State route 76 near Pala Mission Rd. after a deputy spotted a stolen truck.

When the deputy tried to pull the truck over, the deputy says the drier sped off.

The chase reached speeds of 90 miles per hour and lasted about 30 minutes, with deputies from Fallbrook and San Marcos assisting in the chase.

A spike strip was used and put an end to the chase near the Mountain Meadows community of unincorporated Escondido, the department said.

After hitting the curb, the driver put the truck in reverse and rammed into a Sheriff's patrol car, deputies say.

No deputies were hurt.

The female driver and male passenger of the truck, identified as Sally Arrellanes and Roy James Duncan, were arrested and charged with felony evading, assault with a deadly weapon likely to result in great bodily injury, vehicle theft, conspiracy to commit crime and possession of a stolen vehicle.
