BREA ( — California Highway Patrol officers Friday arrested a driver who led them on a pursuit through several cities in Los Angeles and Orange counties.

The pursuit began in an unincorporated area of Whittier around 11:03 a.m. after the suspect went through a road closure and failed to yield, according to SKY9’s Mike Case.

The suspect was seen driving a gray Honda CR-V about 40 miles per hour through Orange County streets that were at least partially wet from rain.

The driver appeared to begin yielding in Villa Park around 11:42 a.m. before abruptly driving off again.

The suspect reportedly stabbed or cut himself in the chest and stomach several times throughout the pursuit.

A CHP patrol vehicle was able to perform a PIT maneuver at 11:49 a.m. to stop the vehicle at Prospect Street and Walnut Avenue in the city of Orange.

The suspect was taken into custody and transported to a local hospital. His condition was not immediately known.
