A suspected burglar is in custody after leading police on a pursuit from West Covina to Baldwin Park Friday morning.

The chase began shortly after authorities received a possible burglary call about 1 a.m., West Covina Police Department LT. Munn said.

Officers chased a black Nissan Altima to Baldwin Park, where it crashed into a white Porsche Cheyenne near the intersection of Francisquito Avenue and Puente Avenue.

The unidentified burglary suspect tried to run after the crash but his leg was too injured to get him very far, an officer at the scene told KTLA.

Two men and a woman who were in the suspect’s vehicle were also injured in the crash.

The woman was taken to a local hospital with major injuries, the officer said. The conditions of the two men were not known.

Video from the scene showed both badly damaged vehicles being loaded onto flatbed tow trucks.

Two women traveling in the Porsche suffered only minor injuries in the crash.

Drivers were asked to avoid the area during the investigation.
