This must be another motorcycle chase thru Santee yesterday, because my kids were on their way to school on Mast Blvd. at 8:30 am and there was a chase on the wrong side of the road that continued on down Carlton Hills Blvd. and onto Mission Gorge Rd.

We have received another witness report of this same chase you are describing Shirley, in fact that report is what led us to the story above. It seems they are separate incidents. We have yet to get anymore information about the chase down Mast Blvd., but if we do, it will be posted. Thanks for contributing to the story, and if anyone else saw the chase, other witness reports would be helpful.

I didn't see the chase but saw a helicopter flying over Mast and heard sirens around 8:30ish as well.

They locked school down when some kind of motorcycle chase was occurring. Don't know if this was the incident or not.

O ya i saw part of the "mystery chase" as the sheriffs blocked off mission gorge and magnolia the motorcyclist came racing thru the intersection w both hands in the air than pops a wheely n takes off down woodside w 2 sheriffs behind him, and with 3 or 4 more to follow n a motorcycle cop.... funny there has been no report of this chase that was seen by a busy Monday morning intersection full of cars but oddly enough there happens to be one about a stolen motorcycle that happened w/out incident... make me wonder why no report about that exact chase but normally they would have no problem releasing weekly arrests.. why didnt this make it.... hmmmm
