Police pursuit ends in Silver Lake [updated @ 7:50 p.m.]

SILVER LAKE – The police pursuit of a stolen pickup truck that began in Highland Park and passed through Downtown L.A. and Echo Park came to an end in Silver Lake tonight.

The pursuit ended at about 7:30 p.m. near Bellevue and Hoover after a 20-minute chase, with two persons emerging from the white truck and surrendering to police, according to aerial video from NBC LA.

Police chased the truck over several major streets – including Figueroa, Alvarado and Sunset – as well as on the congested 110 Freeway. At one point the driver headed the wrong way in a section of downtown.


  1. Thieving scum. Lock ’em up. Glad the police nailed ’em. Score one for the LAPD.

  2. IThey must have gotten caught in all the traffic the new stop sign causes. /sarcasm

  3. You can’t blame these guys for stealing a car when you just got your new State approved drivers license. It’s just too much temptation to only partially break the law.
