    Police Pursuit Begins in Van Nuys, Ends in Hollywood

    (Published Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2019)

    Police were pursuing a vehicle at high speeds in the San Fernando Valley area Wednesday night before the wild chase concluded in the Hollywood area.

    Eliana Moreno and Newschopper4 Alpha were overhead at approximately 11:05 p.m. with a van racing on the 101 freeway at high speeds in an attempt to elude law enforcement.

    The pursuit originally began in Van Nuys but made its way into the Hollywood area.

    When the van attempted to get off the freeway and was met by cars at a traffic light, the pursuit vehicle plowed through the vehicles blocking its way and even collided with one vehicle with enough force to knock off a bumper and flip it around.
