13-year-old leads LAPD on chase across South LA, parts of South Bay in stolen car

A 13-year-old led police on a high-speed chase across South Los Angeles and parts of South Bay in a stolen Toyota Corolla late Monday morning.

The pursuit started in South LA before the suspect led officers toward El Segundo, Hawthorne and Crenshaw. 

The young suspect attempted to make a sharp turn in Inglewood when he hit the center divider and damaged multiple vehicles in the process. After several attempts, officers were able to successfully deploy a PIT maneuver near the intersection of West 135th St and Western Avenue in Gardena just before 11:40 a.m. 

The 13-year-old was then taken into custody.
