SOUTH GATE (CBSLA) — The pursuit of a red Honda ended after more than an hour Thursday evening in the South Gate area after California Highway Patrol officers conducted a PIT maneuver.

Two men were taken into custody, a driver and a passenger, in the area of Seville Avenue and California Street shortly after 6 p.m. after a CHP officer struck the Honda, spinning it around.

It was not immediately clear why officers were pursuing the vehicle, but the chase started in the Bell Gardens area.
