Watch portions of a high-speed pursuit that went from Sunland to Santa Clarita on the 210 and 5 freeways. The chase ended with the suspect crashing his car and then trying to escape on foot. NBC4's Alex Calder reports for a live cut-in on Aug. 31, 2012.
Police arrested a man wanted on suspicion of DUI after he led them on a high-speed pursuit through the Sunland area at speeds estimated in excess of 100 miles per hour.
The suspect crashed his dark-colored sedan into a row of bushes in Placerita Canyon just west of the 14 Freeway and fled the car, along with a female companion.
Based on observations from Newschopper 4, no one appeared to be seriously injured.
The pair crawled through a row of bushes and then began jogging away from the road before splitting up. Aerial video showed the couple stumbling through a field.
The man slowed down and seemed to be walking with a limp. The woman hid under a tree.
By 4:10 p.m., officers with the Los Angeles Police Department caught up to the couple and arrested them.
The half-hour pursuit began at Foothill Boulevard and Mount Gleason, in the Tijunga area.
