2 in Custody After High-Speed Pursuit Comes to End on 101 Freeway in Newbury Park Area

A man and a woman are in custody after a high-speed pursuit came to an end on the 101 Freeway in the Newbury Park area before dawn Friday morning.

The pursuit, which appeared to top speeds of 100 mph at times, began in the San Gabriel Valley, before winding through the San Fernando Valley and finally coming to an end in Ventura County.

San Gabriel police initially attempted to pull over the dark-colored SUV after it ran a stop sign, California Highway Patrol Officer Chris Maldonado said.

The pursuit ensued when the driver refused to stop and CHP officers took over once the driver ended up on the freeway, Maldonado said.

As the vehicle was traveling northbound on the 101 Freeway at the top of the Conejo Grade, the driver decided to pull over and give up, aerial video from Sky 5 showed.

A man and woman were taken into custody, Maldonado said.

Video showed the driver exiting first, a woman with her hands raised.

A few moments later, the second person came out of the vehicle and surrendered to authorities.

Authorities have not released their identities.
