Man leads San Diego police on high-speed chase
What started as failure to yield at a traffic stop in San Diego on Monday turned into a high-speed chase across four freeways before the man was finally apprehended, according to a CBS8 report. The driver, 26-year-old Casey Rios, sped over 90 mph across State Route 52, SR-125, SR-94, and I-805. The officers in pursuit managed to catch him after putting a tire-puncturing spike strip in his path, forcing Rios to pull over just north of Balboa Avenue.
The pursuit began a little after 11 a.m. and lasted about 20 minutes before Rios was arrested. When Rios was in custody, the police searched his car, as Rios admitted to having Xanax and marijuana in his vehicle.
Reckless driving is a serious offense in San Diego and can lead to very serious auto accidents. While Rios is fortunate he did not involve any other vehicles in a car accident due to his reckless driving at high-speeds, other offenders of reckless driving have not been so lucky.
