The pursuit began about 8:40 p.m. when authorities spotted a stolen vehicle near the intersection of Manchester Boulevard and McKinley Avenue. It came to an end near the intersection of Avalon Boulevard and Corbin Avenue about 9 p.m.

Los Angeles Police Department officers then surrounded the vehicle.

The driver got out with his hands up and police deployed a bean bag that hit the man’s upper torso, causing him to lean forward and eventually turn himself in without incident, aerial video showed.

Officers searched the badly-damaged vehicle for possible evidence.

The driver apparently crashed into a big rig during the pursuit. Aerial video showed the stalled big rig near where the pursuit ended.
