Woman drives on shredded tires during lengthy chase on 5 Freeway through OC, LA
A woman drove on shredded tires during a lengthy chase on the 5 Freeway Tuesday evening through Orange and Los Angeles counties before authorities used a PIT maneuver to stop the suspect's SUV and arrest her. After the pursuit ended, California Highway Patrol officers fired what appeared to be non-lethal rounds at the suspect's SUV during a brief standoff on the 5 in Sylmar. Authorities approached the vehicle and pulled the driver out to arrest her. Earlier in the chase, a CHP officer successfully deployed a spike strip in the middle of the freeway. Rubber started coming off the front wheels a short time later, which significantly slowed the vehicle. That allowed for officers to catch up to the SUV and use a PIT maneuver. AIR7 HD was first over the pursuit around 7:40 p.m. while the suspect was on the 5 Freeway in Norwalk. The chase began in San Juan Capistrano.
