The pursuit began about 4:30 a.m. after the driver failed to yield, said a spokesperson for the California Highway Patrol.

Aerial video from Sky5 showed the car, which appeared to be a red Saturn, being chased by multiple patrol vehicles.

The driver led authorities through several side streets in the Long Beach area and then took to the 405 Freeway.

At one point the driver got on the 710 Freeway but then returned to the 405 and headed into Orange County.

Eventually the driver transitioned to the 5 Freeway and exited in Oceanside, where the pursuit continued on surface streets.
