VIDEO: Van Plows Through Cars in Hollywood Police Pursuit

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.

Eventually, the van crashed into several parked cars before coming to a halt near the corner of North Highland Avenue and Leland Way in the Hollywood area at approximately 11:15 p.m.

The driver attempted to flee but did not get far, as police took the driver into custody and cleared the van of additional potential threats.
