A motorcyclist dressed in black, with a female passenger without a helmet, led Los Angeles police and the California Highway Patrol on a 100-mile-plus chase Sunday through all of Orange County before finally stopping in northern San Diego County.
The chase began when Los Angeles police tried to pull over the motorcyclist for an unknown reason near Bob Hope Airport, in the Sun Valley section of the San Fernando Valley. The LAPD officers chased the bike onto the northbound Golden State (5) Freeway, west onto the Ronald Reagan (118) Freeway, and then south on the San Diego (405) Freeway from the northern edge of the Valley.
It passed the City News Service offices in West L.A. at 1:25 p.m., where
an editor spotted the biker and his female passenger both dressed in all-
black. They were in the carpool lane, travelling about 10 miles per hour faster
than the other free-flow traffic.
The chase was taken over by CHP motorcycles and a CHP chopper at West
Los Angeles. The chase continued past LAX, Long Beach, and all of Orange
County, and transitioned onto southbound Interstate 5 at the El Toro Y.
At 2:25 p.m., the chase was poised to enter San Diego County at San
Onofre, according to KNX radio in Los Angeles.
The bike stopped about 2:45 p.m. on southbound Interstate 5 near Las
Pulgas Road on Camp Pendleton, according to the CHP.
KNX radio reported that witnesses told them they saw two people arrested.
