Officers chase a hit-and-run driver in East Los Angeles Thursday night. Sky5 is overhead.

According to Officer Cruz, the Los Angeles Police Department shortly before 10 p.m. spotted a suspected stolen car – a white Kia.

The California Highway Patrol gave chase and headed into the San Fernando Valley, then toward downtown Los Angeles on the 5 Freeway before exiting the 110 Freeway.

The Kia pulled out near the USC campus and ran a red light, prompting the CHP to end its pursuit. LAPD follows the car around 10:45 p.m

It seemed that by 11 p.m. the driver was driving in a circle in the residential area of ​​Jefferson Park with no police vehicles nearby. A passenger ran out of the car near Adams-Normandie.

At around 11:25 p.m., despite the lack of law enforcement officers near him, the driver stopped the car in the Ralphs lot, got out and raised his hands above his head.

He then laid down in an apparent attempt to surrender, although no one attempted to arrest him.
