SANTA ANA – A man who led officers on a brief pursuit Tuesday morning (February 14, 2017 ) crashed into two cars before he was taken into custody

SANTA ANA – A man who led officers on a brief pursuit Tuesday morning (February 14, 2017 ) crashed into two cars before he was taken into custody, authorities said. Police were called to investigate reports of a man passed out in a parked, running Toyota Prius around 8 a.m. on Flower Street, police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna said. “Callers were concerned that he might be drunk and could hurt someone,” he said. The man immediately fled as officers approached. He led police on a pursuit that lasted about 5-10 minutes. He eventually struck two sedans that were stopped at a traffic signal near 3rd Street and Main Street, Bertagna said.
A woman who was in one of the sedans was taken to the hospital in stable condition for injuries sustained in the crash. Two other people in those sedans complained of pain and were checked out by paramedics, but did not need to be taken to a hospital. The man was booked on suspicion of operating a vehicle under the influence of a controlled substance, believed to be methamphetamine, and felony evading.
The intersection was closed until about 10 a.m. while investigators and tow trucks worked to clear the scene, Bertagna said.
