SOUTH GATE, Calif. (KABC) -- A suspect led authorities on a chase through the streets of South Gate and other cities before crashing into another car and being taken into custody Wednesday night.

The chase started around 8 p.m. Authorities did not say what the suspect was being chased for, but he fled through the streets of South Gate, Huntington Park, Boyle Heights, Vernon and Maywood.
