Suspect in custody after high-speed chase ends in Westchester

WESTCHESTER, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A male suspect was taken into custody after a high-speed chase came to an end in Westchester Wednesday afternoon.

The chase ended at about 5:50 p.m. on East Imperial Highway, about 1 mile from the Los Angeles International Airport.

California Highway Patrol officers started pursing the man in a white Nissan at about 5:30 p.m. on the northbound 405 Freeway in the Long Beach area. The CHP says he was wanted for speeding and almost hitting a patrol car.

The suspect made his way onto the eastbound 91 Freeway in Gardena, traveled through South Los Angeles streets and then entered the eastbound 105 Freeway in Hawthorne.

The suspect exited the freeway onto East Imperial Highway. He then attempted to make a U-turn, but a CHP vehicle hit the Nissan, causing the suspect's vehicle to come to a stop.

Authorities surrounded the Nissan and opened the car doors, but the vehicle ended up reversing a few feet before it stopped.

Officers pulled the suspect out of the vehicle and apprehended him without further incident.
