North Hollywood Pursuit and Crash
Last week, a police pursuit ended with a crash in the North Hollywood area. According to KTLA News Channel Five, the wreck happened near Elmer Avenue and Vanowen Street at about 6:30 p.m. on Friday. For currently unknown reasons, law enforcement officers with the Los Angeles Police Department were chasing the vehicle, which could be seen on aerial footage slamming into another car.
Just after the collision, the driver got out of the vehicle and tried to flee on foot. That person was taken into custody. An ambulance was dispatched to the scene, but no information has been released on the extent of any injuries associated with the wreck. Additionally, there has been no word on what charges the driver is facing or why that vehicle was being pursued prior to the crash. This case is likely still under investigation with the LAPD.
