Police arrested a suspected shoplifter Saturday in Chula Vista after she fled police and ran a red light, crashing into another motorist.

Chula Vista police said the woman had taken “a large number of goods” from the Target at 910 Eastlake Parkway before 9 p.m., according to OnSceneTV.

Officers spotted her west of the store on Otay Lakes Road and attempted to stop her, but said she fled at high speeds, running red lights along the way.

At Telegraph Canyon Road and Paseo Ranchero, the suspect hit a Suburu as the male driver attempted to turn north on Paseo Ranchero.

Officers took the injured suspect into custody, but said she resisted arrest while waiting to be transported to a local hospital.

The male victim was not injured.
