The chase began just after 1 p.m. and went along the 110 and 10 freeways, as well as surface streets.

The suspect, driving a stolen white Chevrolet van, slammed head-on into a patrol car and another vehicle before backing up and taking off again.

A second collision occurred after the suspect blew through another intersection and T-boned an SUV.

The driver managed to keep going again, leading authorities past the Los Angeles Coliseum, before eventually running over a spike strip.

Unable to drive the van anymore, the suspect jumped out as it rolled to a stop.

The driver ran across the street and slipped on wet pavement. He was taken into custody without further incident.
