A woman suspected of DUI was taken into custody Friday after leading police on a short pursuit in Hollywood.

Police began pursuing the woman driving a blue sedan along Melrose Avenue, CBS2 reported at about 4:45 p.m.

The woman eventually drove through a red light at the intersection of Santa Monica Boulevard and Highland Avenue, where her car was struck by two other vehicles.

The woman’s sedan spun out and stopped at the corner of the intersection near a gas station. She got out of her car and sat down on a patch of grass as police ordered her to surrender.

Police attempted to restrain the woman, who briefly resisted before she was arrested at about 4:50 p.m.

At least one occupant of one of the other vehicles was taken to a hospital in unknown condition.
