A police chase ended in a violent crash Tuesday afternoon when a suspect slammed into an innocent driver at an intersection in Pasadena, authorities said.



Around 7:45 p.m., the shirtless suspect -- who has not been identified -- stopped on the eastbound 210 Freeway near Wheatland Avenue in Lake View Terrace, exited the vehicle and ran against traffic.

He appeared to chase after one of the vehicles he struck until the truck was able to drive off.

The suspect approached two California Highway Patrol officers, who deployed a taser, causing the man to drop to the ground.

He was quickly taken into custody and treated at the scene.

It was not immediately clear if anyone was injured or how many vehicles were damaged.
