Police Arrest Man After Pursuit, Carjacking

Police arrested a fugitive who led them on a pursuit in a stolen car in downtown Los Angeles, crashed, and then carjacked a woman and tried to flee again, authorities said.

The man appeared to finally give up as he ran into rush-hour traffic on the 110 Freeway.

The wreck happened at Third Street and Beaudry Avenue (map), police said.

Aerial footage of the scene showed a red car smashed in the intersection. A silver sport-utility vehicle went over sidewalk and landed on a hill touching the freeway.

The wanted driver jumped from that SUV onto the 110 Freeway and carjacked a driver to start another chase, according to a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department.

That second pursuit ended 2 miles from the Third Street crash scene.

Three people were taken into custody, LAPD said.
