High-Speed Chase: Driver Leads Police at 100+ MPH Through LA County

Los Angeles, CA- A high-speed police chase that started in the San Gabriel Valley on Monday afternoon ended in a dramatic crash in a residential neighborhood in LA County.

According to reports, the chase began when California Highway Patrol attempted to pull over a suspected stolen vehicle traveling at speeds above 100 mph. The driver refused to stop and led police on a pursuit through multiple cities, including Pasadena, Glendale, and Burbank.

The chase reached its peak when the suspect’s Jeep crashed into a parked car in a quiet residential neighborhood. Eyewitnesses reported that the driver attempted to flee on foot but was apprehended by police shortly after the crash.

Authorities confirmed that the suspect is being held on charges of reckless driving and evading police. They are also investigating whether the driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs while behind the wheel.

Residents in the neighborhood where the chase ended reported feeling extremely shaken up over the incident. “It was like something from a movie. I could hear the sirens and the screeching tires coming down the street, and before I knew it, there was this loud crash,” said one witness.

The chase and crash caused significant traffic delays in the area, and police are urging drivers to avoid the affected streets if possible.

This incident is the latest in a series of high-speed police chases that have occurred in the Los Angeles area over the past few weeks. Authorities are reminding drivers to obey traffic laws and pull over when instructed by police to prevent dangerous and potentially deadly situations from occurring on the roads.
