The driver of a stolen vehicle was taken into custody in Hollywood Monday after leading authorities on a pursuit through the San Fernando Valley.
The chase started at Ventura Boulevard and Vineland Avenue, with the Los Angeles Police Department initiating the pursuit around 2:35 p.m. It was then handed over to the California Highway Patrol at 2:55 p.m.
Sky5 was overhead around 3:20 p.m. as the white Chevrolet Silverado was on the 101 Freeway, heading into Calabasas, Woodland Hills and then Tarzana, Sherman Oaks and Studio City.
By about 3:45 p.m., the driver was in Hollywood, exiting the freeway at Sunset Boulevard and nearly hitting a Metro bus. The vehicle headed westbound on Hollywood Boulevard.
Officers unsuccessfully attempted to deploy a spike strip at 4 p.m.
But the driver stopped the vehicle minutes later, got out of the truck and surrendered to authorities.
No further details were immediately available.
