    High-Speed Police Chase Ends in North Hills
    A driver surrenders to police, their guns drawn, after leading authorities on a high-speed pursuit that began in Pacoima and ended in North Hills on Thursday, May 23, 2013.

    A high-speed police chase ended in Mission Hills Thursday night when the wanted driver apparently was forced to either stop or hit another car.

    The chase, which reached speeds up to 90 mph, flew along at least one freeway -- the Ronald Reagan (118) Freeway -- and surface streets in the San Fernando Valley.

    It began shortly after 10 p.m. when the driver failed to stop for police near Remington Street and Rincon Avenue in Pacoima.

    A watch commander with the Los Angeles Police Department told NBC4 police believe the car, a light-colored sedan, may have been stolen.

    Officers were able to corner the driver near Lassen Street and Haskell Avenue in North Hills shortly before 11 p.m. because the driver appeared to slow down to avoid hitting another car.

    He surrendered to police less than 4 miles from where the chase began and was taken into custody.
