Motorcycle Speeds Away From Police on 405 and 5 Freeways

The pursuit began in the South Bay and continued on several freeways before it was called off about 90 miles away in the Antelope Valley

A motorcycle chase reached speeds of more than 100 mph Monday night before officers called off the pursuit in the Antelope Valley north of Los Angeles. 

The pursuit went up the 405 Freeway from the South Bay to West Los Angeles, with the rider switching from northbound to southbound multiple times. Newschopper4 Alpha was over the chase at approximately 9:35 p.m.

Soon after, the motorcycle moved onto the northbound 5 Freeway, traveling well over 100 mph. Eventually, the motorcycle moved onto the northbound 14 Freeway.

Newschopper4 Alpha, along with the police air units, had to pull off the pursuit as conditions near Agua Dulce and Acton were not fit for flying. The California Highway Patrol was in close pursuit on the ground, as the motorcycle continued to speed away.

The pursuit of the motorcycle was originally initiated due to speeding. The CHP said that ground units eventually lost track of the motorcycle and the driver got away.

No arrests were reported Tuesday.
