A suspected stolen vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed on the southbound San Diego (405) Freeway Thursday evening rear-ended another vehicle in North Hills, spun out across lanes of the freeway and crashed, throwing at least one person from the vehicle.
Police first located the vehicle in Pacoima around 10:30 p.m. and went into tracking mode as the vehicle sped away on city streets, then entered the westbound Ronald Reagan (118) Freeway before transitioning to the southbound San Diego (405) Freeway in Granada Hills.
Shortly after getting onto the San Diego Freeway, the vehicle rear-ended another vehicle near Victory Boulevard and the fleeing driver lost control and the suspect vehicle spun across lanes of traffic before it slammed into a pole.
Two people from the suspect vehicle ran off and were taken into custody. One person was being treated at the scene by Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics.
The southbound lanes of the San Diego Freeway were closed at Victory Boulevard until further notice.
