Carson-to-Valley Chase Ends in Driveway

A driver was taken into custody Tuesday after a pursuit that started in Carson and ended in the northern San Fernando Valley.

The pursuit began at about 8:45 a.m., wound along freeways and surface streets, then ended in the driveway of a home in Arleta.

Officers attempted to stop the unidentified male driver on the northbound San Diego (405) Freeway at Carson Street for an unknown traffic violation, said Lt. Omar  Wilson of the CHP.

Reaching speeds of up to 90 mph, the pursuit continued north, then eastbound on the Ronald Reagan (118) Freeway, and south on Golden State (5)  Freeway before the motorist exited on Roscoe Boulevard in Sun Valley, Wilson  said.

The chase ended about 9:40 a.m. on Jouett Street near Van Nuys Boulevard  in Arleta when CHP officers forced the driver onto the driveway of a home and  boxed his car in, Wilson said. CHP officers then forced him out of his car,  handcuffed him on the ground and arrested him.

Police did not know if the driver had been heading for the home, Wilson  said. There was no information on what the driver would be booked on or where  he was being held, Wilson said.

Authorities have yet released the driver's name or city of origin.
