SAN DIEGO — Two men were arrested Wednesday morning after a police chase that ended in a crash in the City Heights area, police said.

Officers attempted to pull over a Toyota Corolla for an equipment violation around 1:45 a.m. in the 1500 block of Euclid Avenue, but the driver took off, San Diego police public-affairs Officer Billy Hernandez said.

The Toyota driver led officers on a chase from westbound state Route 94 to northbound Interstate 805, then made his way onto Interstate 15 before exiting on University Avenue.

The driver then made a right onto 39th Street before losing control and crashing the Corolla near Polk Avenue.

The driver got out of the car and ran, along with a man who was in the front passenger seat, Hernandez said. Two female passengers in the car were detained at the crash scene, then released a short time later.

Officers tracked down the men nearby and took them into custody by 2:30 a.m., Hernandez said. Their names were not immediately released.
