SAN MARCOS–A parolee with an outstanding warrant led Sheriff’s deputies on a vehicle pursuit in North County Wednesday after she allegedly caused a collision involving a deputy in San Marcos.
Authorities said the driver, Alicia Samantha Edwards, was driving a Toyota Tacoma Pickup, when she made an unsafe lane change on San Marcos Boulevard forcing the unmarked Sheriff’s department vehicle to collide with a motorist.
The deputy attempted to approach Edwards who briefly stopped the vehicle but then fled the scene at a high rate of speed. As the vehicle, driven by Edwards was fleeing, an adult male and an adult female jumped from the vehicle while it was moving and fled on foot. When other San Marcos Sheriff’s deputies attempted to stop Edwards, a traffic pursuit ensued with Edwards leading deputies throughout San Marcos. During the pursuit Edwards collided with several vehicles, failing to stop before the pursuit eventually terminated in Escondido where Edwards drove into the rear of a large truck on Auto Parkway.
Edwards sustained unknown injuries and was transported to Palomar Medical Center where she was admitted and being treated.
She will be charged with several felony charges including hit and run and evading police in a vehicle.
The San Marcos Sheriff’s and Escondido Traffic Divisions are investigating the incident.
