A woman who was driving a reported stolen car was injured after the car that she was driving ended up rolling off the road after a chase in Escondido, CA on Friday, August 30, 2019. The chase reportedly started at around 12:08 pm when a California Highway Patrol motorcycle officer saw the 1990 Toyota Corolla that the woman was driving travelling erratically at a high speed on northbound I-15 close to Mission Road. When the woman did not stop after being pulled over, the officer ran the vehicle’s license plate and found out that the car had been reported as stolen. CHP officers chased the vehicle on northbound and later southbound I-15 at speeds at over 100 miles per hour. When the woman attempted to make a turn at the I-15 and State Route 78 connector in Escondido, the vehicle rolled off the road. The woman was unconscious and sustained a few cuts after the car that she was driving rolled off the road. The woman underwent surgery on Friday afternoon, August 30, 2019, for injuries that she sustained from the crash. The woman also sustained a torn aorta, ruptured spleen, broken clavicle, and kidney damage from the accident. DUI was reportedly a suspected factor of the crash.
