BURBANK, Calif. (KABC) -- A chase came to a chaotic end in a Burbank neighborhood Friday after a fleeing driver reportedly struck a police officer and sheared a fire hydrant, which sent water gushing down the street.
Aerial footage from AIR7 HD showed a pickup truck across a driveway and officers attending to their injured colleague.
The scene unfolded just before 5:30 p.m. after the pursuit ended in a crash near Cohasset Street and Hollywood Way.
Police say the suspect stole a pickup truck and made his way through the 5 Freeway before getting on surface streets.
The sheared fire hydrant sent water into the air near a home.
Police ultimately took a man into custody after a search of the neighborhood.
The police officer suffered unspecified injuries, but he appeared to be alert and was standing on his own.
