A woman who led California Highway Patrol officers on a chase from Santee to the Los Angeles area was pulled from the vehicle and taken into custody Tuesday evening on northbound Interstate 5.
The chase began about 7:30 p.m. on the westbound state Route 52, approaching state Route 125 in Santee when officers tried to pull the driver of a Nissan Rogue SUV over for speeding, according to Officer M. Bailey with the CHP’s San Diego Office.
The pursuit traveled north for nearly three hours before the driver stopped the SUV in the middle lanes of Interstate 5 near Magic Mountain Parkway in Santa Clarita.
Throughout the chase, the driver used her turn signals when changing lanes.
KCAL9 reported the driver may not have been the registered owner of the SUV.
