Boyle Heights Car Chase Ends in Crash, Arrest

By City News Service

A man in a stolen car crashed into a parked vehicle at the end of a brief chase in Boyle Heights Wednesday morning and was taken into custody, police said.

Officers attempted to stop the stolen Honda Accord around 1:50 p.m. but the suspect fled and crashed about one minute later at the corner of Sixth and Bernal streets, said the watch commander at the Los Angeles Police Department’s Hollenbeck Station.

The Honda was reported stolen out of Montebello, he said.

The suspect had abrasions on his face as he was taken from the crash scene in the back of a police cruiser, a news photographer reported from the scene.
