Stolen vehicle suspect surrenders following chase through Echo Park and Silver Lake

Echo Park  —  The police pursuit of a stolen minivan that began in Studio City ended just east of Echo Park this morning.

Aerial video footage showed the van traveling down Sunset Boulevard followed by several squad cars as TV news helicopters hovered overhead.

The chase ended at about 10 am near Sunset and Beaudry Avenue when a squad car bumped the suspect’s vehicle in a PIT maneuver.  The van spun around, bounces off at least two cars and eventually came to a stop. That’s when a female suspect emerged from the vehicle and surrendered.

There were no reports of injuries.
