There was a wild ending to a dangerous police chase Easter night in Sherman Oaks, California, when a driver tried to pull a fast one on police.
LAPD police officers were chasing the female suspect after she stole a woman’s truck in Sherman Oaks. The victim saw the suspect taking her truck right outside her house and when she tried to stop her — the thief tried to run her over.
The armed robbery suspect made her way onto the 101 Freeway as KCAL 9 news choppers followed her from above. She was seen flying at what seemed like triple-digit speeds, racing through medians and whatever else was in her way.
Driving erratically, blowing through residential streets in Woodland Hills, the woman behind the wheel of the stolen vehicle, at one point, got caught in a cul-de-sac. That didn’t stop her though, she just barreled through someone’s yard to make her way back onto the road.
Police were able to track her through the “Find My Phone” App — since the victim’s phone was in the stolen truck, the local CBS station reported.
The drama continued as the woman made an “incredibly brazen move” as the chase came to an end in Chatsworth.
After police did a PIT maneuver, she got out of the truck with her hands up, but then tried to take off with one of the LAPD cruisers that was chasing her.
Officers tackled her to the ground and cuffed her. The woman was taken to the hospital for evaluation. She’d apparently suffered an injury to her leg during the high-speed chase.
