Police Chase Reckless Driver from East L.A. to Commerce; Driver Got Away

By City News Service

(CNS) – A reckless driver led police officers on a wild chase from East Los Angeles to Commerce before evading his pursuers by heading west on the Glen Anderson (105) Freeway moving through Lynwood, Hawthorne and Inglewood, authorities said.

The chase began shortly before 11 p.m. Monday on the northbound Long Beach (710) Freeway in East L.A. The driver then switched to surface streets in Commerce, where he blew through red lights along the way.

Authorities tracked the speeding driver and occasionally was forced to back off as the dark sedan traveled some of the time without lights. The driver was believed to have hit 60 miles per hour or more on surface streets in Compton and Willowbrook, according to authorities.

A passenger in the car was seen waving a balloon outside the window, according to media reports. At one point two people in the back seat fled from the car before the driver continued on his way.

The suspect finally lost police as he drove into Inglewood, near Los Angeles International Airport.
