Police use PIT maneuver to end slow-speed chase in Echo Park

A slow-speed police chase Tuesday made its way from the San Fernando Valley to Sunset Boulevard in Echo Park.

The driver, suspected of stealing the dark minivan, stopped for traffic signals but refused to pull over for police, authorities said.

The 30-minute pursuit was briefly on the southbound side of the 101 Freeway and later exited at Silver Lake Boulevard.

The chase traveled down Sunset Boulevard through Echo Park before authorities used a PIT maneuver to stop the vehicle.

The suspect, whose identity was not released, was eventually taken into custody.
