A 120 mph L. A. chase is one of the top stories making news here in California.
The L.A. Times reported Tuesday that one woman was arrested and cops are still looking for the male driver following a high-speed chase that stretched from San Bernardino to Los Angeles, reaching speeds up to 120 mph. The Press Enterprise reports that the police chase covered several freeways, including highway 91.
Police say the driver nearly hit several pedestrians, including children. The chase began early Tuesday afternoon in Chino. Police were searching in the area for two burglary suspects. They spotted the suspect car and gave chase. The car, a Lexus ES400, weaved through traffic at speeds of up to 120 mph.
The driver finally exited in South Los Angeles and continued on city streets of speeds up to 75 mph. At different points during the chase, the driver almost hit a boy on a skateboard, a couple with a baby, a girl, and a woman.
The chase lasted a little less than an hour when the driver pulled over and ran. The woman who had been the passenger hopped over into the driver’s seat and took off in the car. That chase ended very quickly when the woman hit another car.
She ran into an apartment complex but police were able to find and arrest her a short time later.
