WATCH: Suspect Leads Police on High Speed Chase in Pacoima Area


PACOIMA (CNS) - A driver in a car that was reported to have been stolen led police on an hour-long high-speed chase today on freeways and city streets in the San Fernando Valley.

It's unclear exactly where the chase began, but around 6:35 p.m. the suspect was driving on Van Nuys Boulevard near Cayuga Avenue in Pacoima.

The chase continued on the Hollywood (170) Freeway and surrounding streets. Items were tossed from the car as police chased or tracked the vehicle, twice calling off close pursuit.

At one point two passengers rolled out of the still moving vehicle, but the suspect drove on, reaching speeds approaching 100 mph and narrowly missing other vehicles and at least one pedestrian.

The suspect stopped once in the 9700 block of Telfair Avenue in Pacoima and appeared to be ready to give up, but then sped off again.

The suspect stopped in the same block around 6:35 p.m. and surrendered to officers.

According to CBS2, the vehicle had been stolen.
