A man wanted in connection with a carjacking was taken into custody Tuesday after a minivan pursuit on freeways and streets in the San Gabriel Valley.
Law enforcement officers pursued the driver in the El Monte area, reaching speeds of 85 mph on the 10 and 605 freeways before exiting onto surface streets. At least one tire was damaged during the pursuit as the driver continued on a right front wheel.
The driver swerved through traffic at stoplights and narrowly missed pedestrians in a crosswalk. The shirtless man ran from the minivan after crashing into another vehicle at the intersection.
