Two injured in police pursuit that ends in crash in downtown L.A.

A brief police pursuit of a man who drove recklessly ended Wednesday night in downtown Los Angeles when the suspect crashed into another car, injuring two people and transporting one to the hospital, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Police began following a man driving a Honda around 9:08 p.m. when they saw the car driving recklessly on Wilshire Boulevard and Witmer Street, the LAPD said. Instead of stopping, the suspect ran a red light, according to police.

The chase lasted about a minute and ended a mile away when the driver crashed into a car, police said. Two people in another car were injured, with one person taken to the hospital with serious injuries, according to the LAPD. The other person in the uninvolved car was not taken to the hospital.

Police arrested the suspect and found “large amounts” of money and fentanyl in the car, police said.

The suspect, whose name was not immediately released, was held by police for evading and causing grievous bodily harm and for transporting and selling narcotics, according to the LAPD. Two injured in police pursuit that ends in crash in downtown L.A.
