A 19-year-old burglary suspect led deputies on a pursuit early Monday and then drove in the wrong direction on the Interstate 5 freeway before crashing his car head-on into another vehicle, authorities said
Around 4:09 a.m., deputies responded to a report of a residential burglary in the 24000 block of Hollyoak Avenue in Aliso Viejo, said Sheriff’s Department Lt. Steve Gil.
Deputies spotted a Ford Taurus reported stolen from Temecula leaving the scene of the burglary and pursued the vehicle on several streets in Laguna Hills, Gil said.
They abandoned the chase when the Taurus began traveling north in the southbound lane of the Interstate 5 freeway. Less than a mile later the car crashed head-on into another vehicle near La Paz Road.
The burglary suspect ran from the Taurus and was spotted hiding behind a trash dumpster by personnel aboard a Sheriff’s Department helicopter, Gil said. He was uninjured and taken into the custody.
A description of the other vehicle was not available. The driver of that car, who was not identified, complained of minor pain, Gil said.
