A woman suspected of driving recklessly led Downey Police on a short pursuit Wednesday morning to a hospital emergency room, authorities said.
The pursuit began at 3:20 a.m. at Downey Avenue and Stewart and Gray Road after police received a 911 call reporting that a woman was driving recklessly, said Downey Police Sgt. M. Parino. She drove her SUV at the speed limit to the emergency room of the PIH Health Hospital in the 11500 block of Brookshire Avenue in Downey, stopping in front of the emergency room, he said.
“This is under investigation. We’re trying to make sense of this,” he said.
Whether the woman will face charges depends on the outcome of the investigation, Parino said.
