Female Driver Taken Into Custody Following Pursuit Standoff

A female pursuit suspect was taken into custody Monday afternoon after she was involved in a chase and standoff in Orange County.

California Highway Patrol officers were involved in a standoff with the woman in a blue Corvette following a crash near the Santa Ana Auto Mall.

Edinger Avenue was closed in both directions in the area, causing a major traffic backup during rush hour. 

It's unclear if any injuries occurred in the crash that ended the pursuit, but the pursuit suspect was being examined by paramedics. 

NBC4's Whitney Irick contributed to this report.
