SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A car being pursued by the California Highway Patrol crashed in the Carmel Valley area early Friday morning.

Around 12 a.m., CHP officers attempted to pull over a 2020 Toyota Camry for speeding on southbound Interstate5 near Del Mar Heights Road, but the driver refused to stop.

Officers say the driver was traveling at 135 mph.

The car tried to exit on Carmel Valley Road, but when the driver attempted to get back on the freeway, she lost control on the on-ramp and crashed.

Officers took six women into custody from the car, including the driver.

It's unclear why they chose to flee from CHP officers.

Paramedics later responded to evaluate minor injuries.
