Wild Chase Comes To An End In Paramount

LONG BEACH (CBS) — A dangerous police chase came to an end early Wednesday morning at Garfield Avenue and and Quimby Street in Paramount.

Authorities began pursuing a robbery suspect in Long Beach just after 5:30 a.m. Several patrol cars followed him along the 710 and 91 freeways, as well as surface streets.

The suspect was arrested after the white van he was driving struck a fire hydrant.

At one point, he was traveling the wrong way on the 91 Freeway.

Garfield and Rosecrans were both closed to northbound traffic, according to Mike Case, who was overhead in Sky2.
