Tuesday’s Early Morning Chase Kept Authorities on Their Toes

In the wee hours of Tuesday morning, a woman found herself in a high-stakes game of chase with California Highway Patrol officers. The pursuit began at approximately 1:44 am when officers attempted to pull over a driver for speeding on the northbound 605 Freeway near Telegraph Road in Santa Fe Springs.

But instead of pulling over, the suspect decided to put her pedal to the metal, leading officers on a wild and winding pursuit that spanned multiple Southern California counties. The high-octane chase had authorities on edge as they tried to apprehend the elusive driver.

The pursuit snaked its way through Los Angeles County, leaving a trail of adrenaline in its wake. Officers from various jurisdictions joined the chase, determined to end the reckless escapade.

The pursuit continued into San Bernardino County, where the suspect sped through multiple cities, including Rancho Cucamonga, Ontario, and Rialto. Officers from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department joined the chase, adding to the growing force.

As the chase progressed into Riverside County, authorities from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department also jumped into the fray. The suspect’s reckless driving and refusal to pull over prompted officers to set up multiple roadblocks.
