A stolen-vehicle suspect led deputies on a high-speed chase Thursday before crashing into a tree.
The passenger in the car – a known gang member, Juan R. Santos, deputies say – was arrested, but the driver got away after the crash.
Deputies began chasing the car at 53rd Avenue and 15th Street East. They reached speeds of 70 mph, according to the sheriff's office.
The suspects crashed into a tree at Whitfield Avenue and 15th Street East, where the passenger was nabbed.
The driver bailed from the car and got away.
He is described as a black male, 6-feet tall and skinny. He was dressed in all black with the possible nickname of "D," deputies said.
