Local news

A pursuit of a stolen BMW driven by teenagers ended in a violent rollover crash in North Hollywood Wednesday afternoon.

A black BMW being chased by officers slammed into two parked vehicles around 3:50 p.m. in the area of Camarillo Street and Satsuma Avenue.

The impact from the collision was so powerful, it flipped the BMW over and pushed the parked cars out of their spots.

The BMW came to rest on its wheels again before at least two people were seen running out of the vehicle and into a nearby alley. They were later found and detained by officers, aerial video from Sky5 showed.

The pursuit started before 3:30 p.m. in the Palmdale area, when a teenage girl and boy jumped into the sedan, according to California Highway Patrol Sgt. Brian Axt.

Officers tried to pull the vehicle over but the teens did not stop, according to the sergeant.

The BMW was seen going the wrong way on a North Hollywood street and driving at high speeds through the San Fernando Valley.

Ron Motz, who owns a Cadillac that was hit, said the vehicle was “pretty much totaled.”

The two teenagers complained of minor pains after the crash and were both taken to a hospital, authorities said.

No other injuries were reported as a result of the collision.
