Watch: Excited cameraman narrates LA car chase


Footage recorded from a news helicopter shows the dramatic ending to a police chase in Los Angeles.

A Mercedes-Benz involved in a grocery store theft in Glendora was spotted by a police officer who attempted to pull it over. When the car's driver fled, the officer gave chase.

California Highway Patrol joined local police, pursuing the car for nearly 30 minutes until it crashed in South Los Angeles.

Sergeant Shelly Gold of the Glendora Police Department told reporters that alcohol bottles were thrown from the vehicle during the chase, hitting police cars.

Failing to slow for a junction, the black car took out a stop sign before narrowly missing a pick-up truck and then colliding with a building.

Nobody was injured in the incident and the four occupants all continued to flee on foot. The driver was quickly caught and arrested by police, but the rest of the car's passengers remain on the run.
