According to an air unit, police on the ground were able to deploy spike strips successfully in attempts to slow down the vehicle.

The vehicle stopped at a light at Desmond St. and San Fernando Rd, then continued onto Truman St. and Hubbard St.

Police advised that the suspect's vehicle started smoking from its left side. Despite the potential damage to the car, the car continued eastbound on Hubbard St. then southbound on Foothill Blvd. near Paxton St. before getting on the I-210 W.

With the chase still on, an officer reported that the suspect was now riding on one of his wheel's rims as the pursuit continued.
