Police chase carjacked truck to Mexican border

LOS ANGELES Los Angeles County Sheriff's officials said the pursuit began Thursday night in Willowbrook. Deputies spotted someone driving recklessly in a Lincoln Navigator that was reported stolen the day before. Sgt. Richard Pena said the driver got into a crash, got out of the vehicle and carjacked a pickup truck in the parking lot of a shopping center.

The driver then sped up to 90 mph on several freeways, dangerously swerving across traffic lanes. He was heading toward the border when a patrol car struck the truck's rear bumper. The fleeing vehicle spun to a halt.
