SAN DIEGO — A driver led California Highway Patrol and Border Patrol officers on a high-speed chase from the San Ysidro border crossing to the San Onofre area near Camp Pendleton early Monday.

The chase along approximately 65 miles of Interstate 5 began at the border at about 1:30 a.m., according to broadcast reports.

It ended after the driver ran over a spike strip placed near the Border Patrol checkpoint on the northbound freeway.

The driver, whose name was not immediately available, previously was deported.
