A driver led police officers on a pursuit through the Mission Beach area before escaping arrest Tuesday.

A San Diego police patrol car tried to make a stop on Mariners Way near West Mission Bay Drive around 8:30 a.m.

The driver took off and at one point drove on the sidewalk, then crashed into a parked car and a police car on Castelar Street in Ocean Beach.

Officers ended the pursuit before they could apprehend the driver.

A bumped fell off the car involved in the chase. Officers searched for a white Honda Civic with CA license 6MQD413. SDPD believes the vehicle was stolen at the time of the pursuit.

The car was found two hours later at Mission Bay Park and the driver was taken into custody.
