SAN DIMAS (CNS) – A man who led California Highway Patrol officers on a chase at speeds topping 100 mph from Rialto to San Dimas was hospitalized today with a broken hip after he jumped from a moving car and then leaped off a freeway connector road in Rancho Cucamonga, according to authorities.
The pursuit began around 10:10 p.m. in Rialto when a woman told an officer her car had just been stolen during a domestic dispute, a CHP dispatcher said.
The suspect fled west on the San Bernardino (10) Freeway into Los Angeles County, getting as far as the Via Verde exit before getting on the eastbound 10, CHP Officer Anthony Martin said.
The chase also moved on to the Orange (57) Freeway, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The suspect raced at speeds topping 100 mph, said a KCAL9 helicopter reporter who followed the chase overhead.
The pursuit ended in Rancho Cucamonga just before 11 p.m. when the black Honda Accord struck another vehicle on a transition road from the eastbound 10 to northbound Interstate 15.
The unidentified suspect then jumped out of the moving car and leaped over the guardrail to the street below.
He suffered a broken hip in the fall and was taken to a hospital, a CHP officer told a news photographer at the scene.
A CHP dispatcher described his injuries as minor to moderate.
No one in the other car was injured, according to the CHP.
The suspect’s name, age and hometown were not made available this morning.
