A stolen vehicle led police on a wild chase through South Los Angeles, crashing into multiple cars and injuring three Thursday morning in Inglewood.
The pursuit began when officers from the Los Angeles Police Department spotted a Jaguar in the westbound lanes of the 105 freeway which was believed to have been stolen from the city of Fontana.
Instead of coming to a stop upon the insistence of the police, the driver in the stolen car bolted away and exited the freeway at Crenshaw Boulevard, leading officers on a pursuit through the area.
During the chase the speeding Jaguar slammed into the back of a white pickup truck just north of Imperial highway, causing the truck to spin out and roll over onto its roof.
The collision also sent the stolen vehicle darting into oncoming lanes where it smashed head on into an approaching minivan and finally came to rest. Local news helicopters were in the air at the time, and caught the whole accident on tape.
Pursuing officers then immediately apprehended the suspect and removed him from the scene. Two people inside the can were injured in the crash, a 48-year-old man with a chest injury, and a 38-year-old with lacerations on his head and arms. They were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
The driver of the truck that was overturned was able to escape from his vehicle and managed to avoid anything more than minor injuries.
A portion of Crenshaw Boulevard had to be closed down to allow for cleanup of the accident, and to drag the two incapacitated vehicle from the scene.
