CHP pursuit through South Bay ends in Long Beach

A pursuit led by California Highway Patrol ended in a foot chase through a Long Beach neighborhood, officials said Friday.

The pursuit began when CHP officers attempted to stop a motorist for running a red light in Torrance. The suspect failed to stop and began driving erratically as he entered the 405 Freeway. The chase continued through South Bay onto the 710 Freeway toward Long Beach.

At some point, two CHP patrol cars collided with each other. The officers were not injured.

The suspect led officers to a neighborhood on Cameron Street located near the intersection of Santa Fe Avenue. The suspect, driving a Honda sedan, crashed into at least one vehicle parked on the street; a gray Chevrolet Camaro.

After hitting the Camaro, the suspect exited his vehicle and led officers on a foot chase through the neighborhood around 3:00 a.m. , which upset residents.

"It's happening too often...people's lives are in the midst of all this," one neighbor said.

"Hopefully it's worth chasing people, because they're putting a lot of people at risk," another neighbor stated.

Officers were able to subdue the suspect with a Taser and was then taken into custody.

No other information was immediately available.
