Three Hospitalized After Pursuit Ends with Crash in Echo Park

LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Three people were taken to a hospital and two others were taken into custody after crashing into a pair of utility poles in Echo Park following a pursuit with police.

Officers began pursuing the silver sedan in the Glendale area after attempting to conduct a traffic stop, KTLA reported.

The suspect led police on a high-speed pursuit through Atwater Village and Echo Park before losing control and crashing into two utility poles near Glendale Boulevard and Berkeley Avenue at about 5:25 p.m.

The car rolled over onto its roof and five occupants exited, surrendering to police shortly afterward.

Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics were called to the scene to evaluate the five occupants and ultimately took three of them to a hospital “with traumatic injuries,'' according to Margaret Stewart of the LAFD.
