Fleeing suspects narrowly miss cars, pedestrians
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A car fleeing a possible burglary sped across Southern California freeways at extremely high speeds before the driver bailed out in the south Los Angeles area and a passenger took off again in the vehicle and crashed.
Law enforcement told KCAL-TV that the pursuit began east of Los Angeles in the San Bernardino County area Tuesday.
The car narrowly missed other vehicles on the freeway and then people on the streets of Los Angeles. After the initial driver jumped out, a woman passenger got behind the wheel and sped away, but soon hit other vehicles and she also fled. Police quickly caught her on foot.
KCAL says a man believed to be the original driver was arrested later in the neighborhood.
