Reopened 405 Freeway Scene of Police Chase Hours Later

The pursuit ends about 6 a.m. near Roscoe Boulevard and Haskell Avenue in Panorama City.

Two suspects were arrested in Panorama City Monday after leading officers on a chase in a stolen Jaguar, reaching speeds in excess of 120 miles per hour, police said.

The chase at one point went through the Sepulveda Pass on a portion of the San Diego (405) Freeway that had been closed all weekend and only reopened just a few hours earlier, eight hours ahead of schedule.

The driver wound through some residential streets in the West L.A. area before heading on the 405 back into the San Fernando Valley. The chase at points also travelled on the 101 and 170 freeways, according to KCAL 9 and CBS 2.

The chase, which began about 4 a.m., ended about 6 a.m. near Roscoe Boulevard and Haskell Avenue, said Officer Norma Eisenman, a Los Angeles Police Department spokeswoman. Where the pursuit began was not immediately reported.

One suspect was captured after running from the stopped vehicle and trying to hide in a storm drain. The names of the suspects were not immediately released.

The Jaguar was being driven at times with its headlights off. But a police helicopter kept a spotlight on the vehicle, and officers on the ground were able to follow it to the location where it stopped and a suspect got out and ran.

It was amusing how the reporter "Rick" on News 11 in Los Angeles had very little idea of what he was looking at or talking about. The entire time the headlights were on, he reported that the headlights were off. They should hire at least semi-intelligent reporters.

These days if he or she is good looking, intelligence does not matter in the least. TV new has become an arm of show biz, unfortunately.

405 sucks. I hate it and all the time I waste on it.

“Republicans can do it,” said http://www.coachoutletmls.com Jennifer Duffy, a Senate political analyst at the nonpartisan Cook Political Report. “It’s just getting a http://www.hermesbeltsoutletns.net lot harder.” Rob Jesmer, the executive director of the National http://www.coachfactoryoutletion.com Republican Senatorial Committee, said Thursday that Republican candidates were within http://www.coachfactoryonlinemb.com reach of victory in 10 to 12 competitive races, with Mr. Romney’s improvement in the polls http://www.coachoutletonlineef.org lifting candidates in states that were out of play six weeks ago.But time is dwindling. The implications for the next http://www.coachoutletonlineeu.net two years cannot be overstated. If Mr. Obama wins a second term, his hand would be much strengthened http://www.coachfactorystorebg.org by a Democratic-led Senate, even a narrowly divided one, as opposed to unified Republican http://www.coachoutletonlinetpc.net majorities in the House and the Senate.At the moment, Democrats are given little chance of winning the http://www.coachoutlethcs.com net 25 seats they would need to take the House, though they could well gain House seats.If Mr. Romney wins the White House, even a one-seat Democratic http://www.coachoutletb1.com

The state railway, Deutsche Bahn, operates http://www.outletcoachstoday.com what it calls - using the English that http://www.coachoutletod.com infuriates language purists - a Call a Bike scheme. http://www.coachs-outletcar.com There is a bank of red bikes outside the station. On the bike, http://www.coachoutletdp.com there's a telephone number which you call, and http://www.coachoutletwo.com the voice at the other end gives you a code to http://www.coachfactoryoutletsp.com unlock the bike.When you've finished, you lock it http://www.coachfactoryoutletli.net to something fixed and call the number with a code and somebody picks it up. http://www.coachfactoryoutletce.org You will be charged eight cents a minute.But most of us have our own bikes. We http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net do not wear helmets. It is foolish, but we don't. I always mean to - but I http://www.coachoutletonlinesc.com don't. I realise that the brain is man's second favourite organ - but I still http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com leave my helmet behind.There is an argument now that if cities insist on http://www.louisvuittonoutletct.com helmets for bike-hire schemes, then people simply don't ride bikes. And if http://www.louisvuittonoutletti.org people don't ride bikes, then they're less fit and that means that more of them http://www.coachoutletrf.com die of heart-attacks.On this argument, insisting on helmets raises the overall death.
