Driver in San Fernando Valley chase sideswipes work truck – NBC Los Angeles

The streets of Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley were the scene of a dramatic chase involving a stolen car and a work truck on Tuesday. The driver of the stolen silver Toyota sedan stopped to grab what appeared to be a folder of documents from the trunk before taking off again as police closed in. The pursuit continued, with the driver ultimately crashing into a yellow City of Los Angeles work truck after making a U-turn on a narrow street in the Van Nuys area.

Despite efforts by law enforcement to stop the driver, including deploying a spike strip, she was only brought into custody after stopping a few blocks later. The chase, which was tracked by a law enforcement helicopter overhead, came to a chaotic end as the woman crawled out of the driver’s side window, scattering the documents she had retrieved on the ground. The details of the initial auto theft that prompted the police pursuit were not immediately available, leaving many questions unanswered about the events leading up to the dramatic chase in the San Fernando Valley.
