The pursuit began around 6:00 pm this evening when a San Diego county Sheriff Deputy attempted to stop a vehicle that had struck 7 parked cars near Del Mar Heights Road and Mango Drive in San Diego. The vehicle took off and went down the southbound I-5.
The vehicle was chased along the I-5 until it exited at Carmel Valley Road where it hit 2 cars that were stopped for a red light.
Armin Hassankhai, 26, of Rancho Penasquitos had to be subdued by police at the accident scene before he could be arrested. Hassankhai was taken to the hospital and treated for his injuries before he was booked. It is thought that he may have been under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
