Do you like a car chase? How about a 120 mph L.A. chase?

According to the Los Angeles Times, one woman was taken into custody and police were seeking a male driver after a dangerous 120 mph chase stretched from San Bernardino to South Los Angeles, Calif., on Tuesday.

The 120 mph L.A. chase began shortly after noon in Chino as authorities searched for two burglary suspects, pursuing them on the 71, 91, 60, 710, 105 and 110 freeways. The Lexus ES400 that the suspects were in weaved in and out of traffic at speeds topping 100 mph.

When the suspects arrived in South Los Angeles, the driver exited at Florence Avenue and continued at speeds between 60 and 75 mph on surface streets, just barely missing several pedestrians including a boy on a skateboard, a couple wheeling a baby across the street and a little girl pulled out of the way at the last minute by a woman.

Shortly before 1 p.m., the male driver fled the Lexus on foot and, while holding a cellphone to his ear, appeared to run into an apartment complex near the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The woman, who was the passenger, then jumped into the driver's seat and drove off, leading officers on a short chase that ended when she appeared to hit another vehicle.

She then fled the vehicle and ran, to another apartment complex while also holding a cellphone to her ear before being arrested a short time later.
