A man in a silver Lincoln Navigator SUV with license plates from Georgia, suspected of the red light in South Los Angeles, led authorities tonight on a quick chase through four cities that ended when he crashed into three vehicles in Huntington Park.
The chase started at 9:52 p.m. on Gage Avenue and Miramonte Boulevard, where California Highway Patrol officers said the suspect had a red light, according to CHP Officer Patrick Kimball. The CHP patrols unrecorded areas near South Los Angeles.
The suspect hit speeds of up to 90 miles per hour and drove through various red lights as he fled from agents on streets in Los Angeles, South Gate, Huntington Park and Vernon, before turning to avoid vehicles at the intersection of Alameda and Alameda streets Randolph, lost control and crashed into three vehicles stopped at a red light.
The impact of the crash was so severe that the tires on the rear of the SUV broke and eventually ended up on the sidewalk.
The driver remained in the vehicle for about 15 minutes before the officers used less than deadly laps to break the driver’s rear window and the man got out and surrendered.
It was unclear whether someone involved in the crash had been seriously injured.
