SAN DIEGO — A man and a woman suspected of stealing a car and leading San Diego State University police officers on a brief chase near the campus escaped on foot after crashing the car, authorities said.

SDSU police officers pursued a stolen white Toyota Monday afternoon from Montezuma Road onto Fairmount Avenue, where the driver lost control and crashed while attempting to get onto Interstate 8, according to a SDSU police statement. Both occupants escaped.

The driver ran off and was last seen in the vicinity of the Motel 6 on Alvarado Canyon Road, police said. His passenger was picked up by someone driving a newer white SUV, possibly a BMW. They headed east on Interstate 8, police said.
