Dramatic SoCal Police Pursuits

Southern California is notorious for its police pursuits. Recent months have seen a remarkable assortment of chases, from the infamous "money toss," to the man huffing on colorful balloons as police close in, to the pink-hoodied driver who sprinted from a getaway car while talking on her cell phone. As the moments from eight recent chases captured here illustrate, car chases defy logic and common sense, putting the police and the public at risk.

A car involved in a police pursuit ended up in the bay of a car wash Tuesday morning after sideswiping several vehicles at an intersection south of downtown Los Angeles.

The pursuit began after a report of a stolen vehicle.

Aerial video showed at least one person transported to an ambulance and at least two other vehicles damaged at the intersection near 42nd Street and Central Avenue. Details regarding the woman's condition were not immediately available.

Two people were taken into custody, according to City News Service.
