The motorist wouldn't stop and led the officer on a short chase up the highway, the CHP said.
The chase ended at 1:30 a.m. when the motorist failed to negotiate a curve in the highway and crashed into a concrete slope at Trancas Street, the CHP said.
The driver, Justin Snook, 19, of Napa was transported to Queen of the Valley Medical Center with moderate injuries, the CHP said.
Alcohol appeared to have played a role in this crash, the CHP said.
