Suspects evade CHP in high-speed pursuit into Mexico

LEMON GROVE, Calif. - A speeding driver led California Highway Patrol officers on a chase early Wednesday along several freeways between the La Mesa-Lemon Grove city line and the U.S.-Mexico border.

Officers attempted to pull over a black Jeep Cherokee for speeding on westbound state Route 94 approaching Massachusetts Avenue shortly before 2 a.m., but the driver did not stop, according to the CHP.

The Jeep headed west on state Route 94, then south on Interstate 15. It then transitioned onto southbound Interstate 5 and traveled through San Diego, National City and Chula Vista as it continued toward the international boundary, according to the CHP.

CHP officials said the driver also headed east on state Route 905 for a time before being taken into custody at the Otay Mesa border crossing. The driver's name was not immediately released.
