SAN DIEGO — A police pursuit ended in a crash Monday near Mission Valley, according to the San Diego Police Department.

The pursuit started shortly before 8:30 a.m. near Sports Arena Boulevard when officers attempted a traffic stop on a white Chevrolet SUV, an SDPD Watch Commander told FOX 5.

The driver of the vehicle ignored the traffic stop, leading police on a brief pursuit along eastbound Interstate 8 that ended when the driver lost control of the vehicle and crashed while attempting to exit onto Hotel Circle, CHP Public Information Officer Jesse Matias said.

A man and a woman exited the vehicle after the crash, with the woman reportedly telling officers that she had swallowed some fentanyl at some point during the chase.

The man was detained and the woman was taken to a nearby hospital, police said.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash and DUI was not considered a factor, according to CHP.

The crash portion of the incident is under investigation by CHP and the pursuit and arrest investigations are being handled by SDPD, Matias said.
