Suspects Sought After High-Speed Chase Escape

The driver of a gray Honda led police on a high-speed pursuit in the San Fernando Valley Thursday night and managed to evade them in what appeared to be a Hollywood-style escape.

Speeds approached 90 mph as the police helicopter tracked the car after patrol cars stopped following out of safety concerns.

As the car went under an overpass on Lanark Street at the 5 Freeway, the driver apparently jumped out of the moving car and fled into a second car that was waiting under the overpass. The car continued to roll down the street.

A woman was seen running through yards near the overpass.

One woman was seen being detained by police and the driver was being sought.

Investigators were looking into the possibility that some people had fled the car while it was in the tunnel and fled in a separate vehicle.
