    One person was arrested after a CHP chase on northbound Interstate Highway 680 at the Alum Rock overcrossing in San Jose. Monday, June 27, 2016.

    The California Highway Patrol said the driver of a Volvo crashed while speeding away from deputies in San Jose before being arrested.

    Sgt. Christopher King said the driver ran a red light Monday about 2 a.m. prompting a pursuit. A few minutes later, the Volvo ended up on US Highway going at speeds up to 100-miles-per- hour. Eventually, the driver lost control, slammed into the center divider, then spun across all lanes before coming to a stop, King said.

    The driver was hurt but is expected to be OK.
