At 9:27 p.m., CHP officers attempted to “make an enforcement stop on a 2011 BMW sedan for speeding at a location of northbound I-5 freeway at Lyons,” Greengard wrote in an email to The Signal. “The suspect fled northbound on the I-5 freeway. The pursuit went up to Vista Del Lago, where the suspect exited and merged onto the southbound I-5 freeway.” 

The suspect vehicle exited southbound Interstate 5 at Magic Mountain Parkway and turned right, then collided into an Audi with paper plates, according to Greengard. The pursuit ended at 9:53 p.m.

No injuries were reported. Greengard declined to release the suspect’s name, saying the investigation is still pending.
