The crash was occurred about 4:45 p.m. near the intersection of South Street and Clark Avenue.

Six vehicles were involved in the crash and a Ford pickup ended up on top of another vehicle, aerial video from Sky5 showed.

The pursuit only lasted about 3 minutes, after Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies determined the pickup was stolen out of Riverside.

The suspect driver, a woman, continued driving despite being told to stop and then ran a red light at the intersection, crashed into another vehicle, rolled over and hit the other vehicles, sheriff's officials said in a news release.

The driver and the passenger in the stolen truck were taken to a hospital by the Los Angeles County Fire Department. Two other people also suffered minor injuries in the crash.

Two suspects in the car were detained. It is unclear if the people who were taken to a trauma center where those who were in the truck.

Several patrol cars and deputies responded to the crash, aerial video showed. No deputies were injured.

People gathered at Mayfair Park near the crash to watch the aftermath.

Witness Larry Farnsworth called the crash "bizarre" and told KTLA he had never seen anything like it before. He said the suspect truck rolled over about three times before it "flew up in the air" and landed on top of the other car.

Another witness, Melissa Hughes, said the man and woman crawled out of the car and ran away before being apprehended by police. She said the woman was pregnant.

The intersection was blocked after the crash, and motorists were asked asked to seek an alternate route, sheriff's officials tweeted.

No further details have been provided Thursday.
