Police pursuit ends in crash in Ocean Beach parking lot

A police pursuit of a driver who refused to pull over on the freeway near downtown early Tuesday ended with a crash in a parking lot in Ocean Beach, San Diego police said.

The driver was heading north on Interstate 5 near Sixth Avenue just after 2:25 a.m. when a San Diego police officer tried to pull him over, said San Diego police Sgt. David Yu. Instead of stopping, the driver kept going and led officers on a pursuit that led into Ocean Beach.

About 12 minutes after the chase began, the driver crashed into a parked car in a parking lot on Newport Avenue near Catalina Boulevard, Yu said. The driver then got out of his car and ran, but officers chased him down and caught him.

Yu said the suspect was transported to a hospital to be checked out. Yu did not have any information about injuries or his condition.

The man will face felony evading charges, he said.
