The suspect drove at extremely high speeds and, at times, drove on the wrong side of the sidewalk and the road throughout the pursuit.

After using a PIT technique to halt the driver’s second stolen vehicle, officials utilized a PIT maneuver to apprehend the driver and end the chase at a Carl’s Jr. parking lot in Torrance. After the maneuver, the cars whirled so fast that one of them struck a person who was walking by. It’s unclear how the pedestrian is doing.

The suspect tried to flee toward the Carl’s Jr. after the stolen car spun out, but police soon caught up with him. The identity of the suspect has not been released by the authorities.
