Police pursuit ends in two collisions in downtown L.A.

A police chase ended Thursday night in two collisions in downtown L.A., leaving a suspect seriously injured and two police officers with minor injuries.

The incident began about 8 p.m. when police responding to a report of an assault with a deadly weapon began pursuing some suspects, said Officer Cleon Joseph of the Los Angeles Police Department.

The officers chased the suspects' vehicle on the 110 Freeway in a pursuit that lasted about four minutes, he said. The suspects crashed into another vehicle near the intersection of 9th and Figueroa streets. The officers were involved in a separate collision, but the details were unclear.

Three people were arrested. One suspect was in the hospital in serious but stable condition. The officers also were taken to a hospital with minor injuries, Joseph said.
