Driver arrested after chase ends with PIT maneuver in Sherman Oaks

One man was arrested Tuesday afternoon, after leading California Highway Patrol Officers on a chase through parts of Ventura and Los Angeles counties

The chase began shortly after 2 p.m. in the Ventura area, when the driver of a silver Hyundai Elantra failed to stop at a stop sign according to CHP officials. The chase then continued onto the 101 Freeway around 2:40 p.m., with the driver heading southbound leading officers into LA County.

The driver did come to a stop on the highway briefly before continuing southbound into Sherman Oaks. Minutes later, a CHP cruiser used a PIT maneuver on the slow-moving car, bringing the chase to an end. Immediately after being spun out, the driver surrendered to authorities.
