A man led police on a wild car chase in Los Angeles Monday, hitting multiple vehicles and carjacking a woman on live television before officers ended the pursuit by shooting him as he attempted to steal yet another vehicle.
The dramatic chase started in the evening as officers responded to reports of a stolen vehicle. The unidentified suspect was seen driving extremely erratically through red lights and into oncoming traffic.
Throughout the pursuit, the man was involved in several traffic collisions, but kept driving in his attempt to evade officers.
The first collision came as the man t-boned a pickup truck with his Toyota Camry.
Moments later, as he attempted to make his way through an intersection, he was involved in another accident as a car t-boned his vehicle.
A third accident then occurred, knocking off the front of the suspect's vehicle.
Finally, a fourth crash rendered the man's car obsolete. He was seen on live television hopping out of the Camry and carjacking a woman at gunpoint.
The suspect continued leading police on a car chase before he became stuck after his vehicle became wedged in between two cars.
He was seen on television attempting to carjack two others before he fell to the ground after police fired at him.
The man was quickly detained by officers and taken away from the seen in an ambulance.
