ESCONDIDO, Calif. (KGTV) - A woman was injured following a high-speed pursuit that ended with a rollover crash in Escondido Friday.

A California Highway Patrol officer taking part in a saturation patrol for the Labor Day weekend saw the woman speeding on north Interstate 15 and Mission Road about noon, the CHP said.

The woman exited and got back on the freeway in a stolen Toyota Corolla, heading south at speeds up to 100 miles an hour, said officers.

Eventually, the woman crashed as she tried to to take the westbound SR-78 ramp. The car rolled over on the freeway embankment.

CHP officers said the woman, who is in her 40s, was not wearing a seat belt. She was not thrown from the car.

Paramedics found the woman unconscious and took her to the hospital.

Alcohol and drugs were factors in the crash, officers said.
