The person was Identified as Carly Cortez in her early 20s with a last reported address in Kings County.  

A California Highway Patrol Newhall unit originally attempted to stop the gray Land Rover for a carpool violation, according to Officer Josh Greengard, a spokesman for the California Highway Patrol Newhall Office.   

The vehicle failed to stop and CHP pursued the SUV, which started on Highway 14 northbound at Sand Canyon and continued into the Antelope Valley area.

“One of the Newhall sergeants waited at Ward Road and had a successful spike strip deployment,” Greengard said.  

The suspect was taken into custody and it was later determined the vehicle was stolen from a residential burglary in North Hollywood, according to Greengard.
