SAN DIEGO — A teen woman was harm as she leaped out of the best way of a driver fleeing from undercover DEA brokers in southeast San Diego Wednesday, officers confirmed.
The chase began round 1:30 p.m. close to Euclid Avenue and Hilltop Drive in Chollas View, when undercover DEA and Homeland Safety brokers tried to tug a driver over as a part of a drug trafficking investigation.
The man pulled over when authorities first lit up the undercover automotive’s lights and siren, but they took off when a DEA agent recognized himself, an agency spokesperson stated. The driving force tried to drive on a mud strolling path, narrowly lacking a teen woman who leaped out of the best way of the car. The person crashed, hopped out and ran away, but agents have been capable of monitor him down at a nearby fuel station with help from sheriff’s deputies.
The woman who jumped out of the best way of the automotive suffered minor accidents, officials stated. She was taken to the hospital and released to her mom a short time later.
Brokers consider they recovered 6 kilograms of fentanyl and three pounds of meth inside the car. “By removing this harmful drug from the streets of San Diego, any potential for unintentional overdose was eradicated,” the DEA stated.
