High-speed chase ends in Del Mar
A motorist who refused to pull over for police in the Santa Fe Springs area led officers on a three-county pursuit that reached speeds of nearly 120 mph before he pulled over and surrendered peacefully June 30 in San Diego County.
The driver refused to pull over for a traffic stop about 1 p.m. at Washington Boulevard and the San Gabriel River (605) Freeway, California Highway Patrol Officer Florentino Olivera said. He then began speeding in a generally southbound direction, eventually winding up on the Santa Ana (5) Freeway, speeding through Orange County at triple-digit speeds.
The driver continued south into San Diego County, but once he reached the Del Mar area, he pulled to the right shoulder of the freeway, slowed to a stop then got out of the vehicle and surrendered to police.
Despite some reports that as many as three people might be in the SUV, the driver turned out to be the only one inside.
