KTLA covered the chase during its 1 p.m. newscast and KCAL cut into its regularly scheduled programming at 1:45 with a special report, airing live chopper video. The chase ended around 2:00 when the driver stopped his car at an intersection and surrendered to police.
KTLA’s coverage was anchored by Leila Feinstein and Chris Burrous, with Mark Kono reporting from the station’s news chopper. Daytime anchors Dave Gonzalez and Serene Branson reported on the chase for KCAL, along with chopper pilot Derek Bell.
There also appeared to be a local news photographer on the ground as police arrested the driver. No word yet on who that photographer works for (or how he/she was able to get so close, so quickly).
