A driver was transported to a hospital after a pursuit ended on the northbound 5 Freeway in the Santa Clarita area Monday night.

Few details were immediately provided about the chase, which ended when authorities performed a PIT maneuver on the vehicle shortly after 11 p.m., aerial video from Sky5 showed.

Soon after, the driver was taken away from the scene by stretcher, the video showed.

California Highway Patrol officials would not confirm if the incident was a medical emergency.

It was also not immediately clear what prompted the pursuit.
