Covina police arrest man following chase

COVINA — A driver fleeing from Covina police crashed into another car, ran through yards and hid in a van early Thursday.
But officers found his hiding place.
Andrew Rubio, 28, of Artesia was arrested on suspicion of felony evading police and felony hit-and-run, Covina police Sgt. Jim McDonough said.
The incident started around 12:30 a.m. on Glendora Avenue and Cypress Street.
An officer tried to pull over a driver for a traffic violation but the man didn’t stop, according to McDonough.
He estimated the blue 1990 Honda Accord hit 85 mph during the chase. The Honda collided with another car at Ghent Street in Glendora.
McDonough thinks one person in the car that was hit complained of pain.
The suspect got out of the Honda and ran. McDonough said the man jumped fences, walls then found an unlocked van to hide in.
Glendora and Azusa police assisted Covina police.
Rubio was being held at the Inmate Reception Center in Los Angeles on a $75,000 bail.
