Los Angeles pursuit ends in crash, officer-involved shooting

Posted on December 14, 2013

A high-speed pursuit involving a silver Chevrolet Corvette ended violently Friday when the Corvette collided with another car that ran a red light.

After the crash, the Corvette driver attempted to flee, but LAPD officers who arrived on the scene shot him. It is unclear at this time if non-lethal rounds or bullets were used to subdue the suspect.

The pursuit started around 9:30 p.m. in East Los Angeles. Deputies attempted to stop the driver for alleged reckless driving.

The pursuit went through numerous Los Angeles communities including East Los Angeles, and Bell and Huntington Park. The pursuit ended 60 minutes later at the intersection of Los Angeles Street and Olympic Boulevard when it collided with the other car.

The driver of the Corvette was described to be in his 40s, but that was all the information the police have released so far. An ambulance took the suspect away and the extent of his injuries is currently unknown.

The pursuit involved patrol vehicles from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and California Highway Patrol vehicles before the LAPD became involved and took over.

The condition of the other driver and unknown passengers of the other car involved is still unknown.
