Sheriff's pursuit ends in dramatic 6-vehicle crash in Lakewood; 2 in custody

LAKEWOOD, Calif. (KABC) -- An overturned pickup truck landed on top of an SUV when a brief chase ended with a six-vehicle crash Thursday afternoon at an intersection in Lakewood, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said.

The pursuit began shortly after 4:30 p.m. and lasted only about 15 seconds before the driver of a stolen vehicle slammed into a civilian's vehicle at Clark Avenue and South Street, a sheriff's spokesperson said.

Remarkably, three people suffered only minor injuries in the collision. They were treated by Los Angeles County firefighter-paramedics; at least one was transported to a hospital.

Two suspects were taken into custody after the incident, authorities said. It was unclear if they were among the injured.
