An erratic driver who maneuvered wildly on freeways, narrowly avoiding pedestrians on surface streets, was arrested Monday after leading police on a chase from Topanga through Hyde Park.
The chase began just before 3:45 p.m. after the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) responded to a report of a burglary. The vehicle in question, a speedy red Mercedes, zipped through surface streets and freeways at a high rate of speed, ultimately coming to a stop on train tracks in Hyde Park after crashing into another vehicle.
After bailing from the vehicle, the driver took off on foot in an attempt to evade officers, attempting to hide from them in an apartment complex in neighboring Inglewood.
Following a brief search, officers were able to make an arrest. The name of the driver has not yet been released.
It is unclear if the driver of the vehicle whom the suspect crashed into was injured.
