Chase Arrest Near Border

SAN YSIDRO, Calif. –A high-speed pursuit involving two possibly stolen vehicles ended early Thursday when one car crashed and a minivan sped across the border into Mexico.

One man is in jail, another on the loose after a double car chase near the U.S.-Mexican border.

Police were chasing a Jeep Wrangler and Honda minivan on southbound Interstate 805 around midnight.

The Jeep went up an embankment and crashed to a stop. The driver ran off, but police tracked him down and arrested him a short time later.

The minivan continued south at speeds in excess of 100 mph, officials said. It sped across the border at San Ysidro and escaped into Mexico.

    So the mexican authorities just let him in, yet they stop an American and lock him up for months this is why we need them out… NO Amnesty at all

      The numbers do not add up from what the feds are feeding the public. If barry does what he says, we are talking 25 million illegals nation wide, not a few million.

      When you cross the border via car, you cross the official country line and basically make a big semi-circle before reaching any Mexican border agents/checkpoints. A majority of that semi-circle is obscured from view from the US side.

      So, we can’t say either way that van did or did not get stopped once it reached the authorities on the Mexico’s side.
