BURBANK (CBSLA.com) — A low-speed pursuit has come to an end in Burbank after a suspect driving a work van crashed into another vehicle.
Police responded to a call of a vehicle driving erratically in Sun Valley just after 4:30 p.m.
The driver of an American Solar Direct van refused to yield to officers and took them on slow speed pursuit through residential streets.
The pursuit came to an end on Buena Vista St. around 4:45 p.m. after the van rear-ended Nestorio Layumas’ vehicle.
“It was scary, it was really scary,” Layumas said. “It hit me so suddenly and so strong. I was trying to control the steering wheel but I couldn’t do it.”
The suspect complied with officers and was taken into custody.
Officials suspect he may have been driving under the influence.
