Three people wanted in connected with an attempted murder and carjacking led police on a dangerous high-speed chase in Los Angeles Saturday afternoon before they were arrested.

All were inside the blue Hyundai Sonata as the driver blew through intersections and collided with at least two cars.

Reports indicated the trio may have used a sledgehammer in the carjacking, with police referring to them as attempted murder suspects.

After getting trapped behind traffic, all three people got out the car and ran into a neighborhood near Crenshaw Boulevard and 59th Place in the Hyde Park neighborhood.

Police then began searching from house to house, and at least one family had to evacuate their home.

One woman was seen being detained by police around 2:50 p.m. as they continued to search for the other two people. The other two were also taken into custody shortly after.
