A pursuit that started about 4:30PM this afternoon ended up with a crash on the 101 a short time later, causing big problems for the Friday evening commute.

We don’t always cover incidents this far out, but did in this case since it was on surface streets initially, heading westbound toward us.

The incident began on Los Feliz Boulevard, where an LAPD officer reported that he was following a possible stolen vehicle.

It turned into a pursuit by the time they reached Franklin and Western, and information came out that it was a carjacking suspect.

They headed west on Hollywood Blvd and jumped on the 101 northbound.

The vehicle drove up the shoulder lanes while being pursued, but didn’t make it far. The suspect crashed around Highland Avenue and the 101.

LAPD and CHP officers briefly shut down the freeway in both directions while they took the suspect into custody.

A bus was sideswiped in the mayhem, causing minor damage but no injuries.
