The driver was surrounded by patrol cars after a pursuit through the San Fernando Valley on Tuesday.

The pursuit began just before 5:30 p.m. at Arleta Avenue and Osborne Street in Pacoima, with the driver of a white sedan being chased through surface streets in near Whiteman Airport.

The driver was suspected of reckless driving, Los Angeles Police Department Sgt. Albert Gonzalez said.

The vehicle headed onto the 5 Freeway and then back onto surface streets during Tuesday evening rush hour.
