This morning, as our vanpool was toodling to work, going down Hayvenhurst between Chatsworth and Devonshire… we suddenly had a car going like a bat out of hell run the red light perpendicular to us (i.e., crossing right in front of us just as we were about to enter the intersection). Our driver slammed on the brakes so we wouldn’t get hit. The car that ran the light was immediately followed about about 10-14 LAPD cars, all going superfast, some with lights, only one with sirens (ETA: turned on as that police car hit the intersection).
We were lucky. Had we been just a little faster through the interchange there would have been fatalities. I can’t find any details about this chase on the news yet. Quite an exciting way to start the morning.
