Suspect leads CHP on high-speed chase in El Monte area

EL MONTE, Calif. (KABC) -- A high-speed chase came to a slow end Tuesday night in an El Monte neighborhood.

California Highway Patrol officers attempted to pull over the dark-colored sedan for speeding at about 9:20 p.m. on the southbound 605 Freeway at Beverly Boulevard in Pico Rivera, when the driver sped off.

The suspect led authorities through Industry, El Monte and South El Monte neighborhoods. Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies took over the pursuit near the end.

During the chase, the car could be seen speeding through stop signs on surface streets and driving on the wrong side of the road.

At one point, the suspect ran a red light and nearly crashed into a white sedan driving past.

By 9:50 p.m., the vehicle appeared to have at least one flat tire and was slowing down.

About 20 minutes later, the suspect stopped in front of a seemingly parked patrol car and surrendered to authorities. One man was arrested.
