Suspect Escapes Santee Sheriff Pursuit After Crashing Car Into Garage

A man takes sheriff's deputies on a chase that ends with a crash and escape on foot.

A man led sheriff's deputies on a brief pursuit in Santee early Tuesday and got away on foot after crashing his borrowed vehicle into a parked car, which in turn struck a garage, authorities said.

The pursuit began in the area of 200 East Bradley Avenue at 12:08 a.m. after deputies saw the man driving a Saturn car erratically, according to San Diego County sheriff's Sgt. Marliu Marcq.

The pursuit ended about two minutes later when the man crashed the Saturn into a car that was parked in a driveway in the 900 block of Flint Street, Marcq said in a statement. The parked car was pushed into a garage, damaging both the vehicle and the structure, he said.

The man bailed on foot, Marcq said, noting no one else was in the Saturn.

Investigators contacted the registered owner of the Saturn and learned the man had borrowed it from a family member a few minutes prior to the pursuit. According to the lieutenant, the man's whereabouts were unknown.

No one was injured in the pursuit and related crashes.
