OXNARD, Calif. – A woman in a reportedly stolen U-Haul truck who led authorities on a high-speed chase through Southern California has been tackled by an officer as she ran from the vehicle.
The chase began Wednesday afternoon in the high desert city of Palmdale, wound through Los Angeles and then headed west along Pacific Coast Highway into Ventura County.
More than two hours after it began, the U-Haul truck came to a halt on a rural road. The driver sprinted away from the truck, yanked on the door of a stopped car and then was chased down and arrested.
