Both were caught as they tried to escape on foot.
The car was clocked at about 130 mph by a KCAL-TV helicopter as it screamed along Southern California freeways, in and out of traffic, and onto roadside shoulders.
The California Highway patrol told KCAL ( http://cbsloc.al/13lrDH3) the pursuit began after what was reported as a burglary in the Chino Hills area of San Bernardino County, about 30 miles east of downtown.
Using a series of freeways, the fleeing car sustained speeds that were extraordinary even by standards of pursuit-jaded Southern California.
The driver finally exited a freeway south of downtown Los Angeles and whipped through narrow neighborhood streets, zipping past a skateboarder, a child who was yanked back onto a curb by a woman, and a man with a shopping cart in a crosswalk.
The male driver suddenly stopped and jumped out, holding a cellphone to his ear, and ran off as a female passenger took the wheel and sped off.
Within minutes the second driver sideswiped a bus, abandoned the car and ran off, discarding a cellphone before running through residential properties and jumping fences. Officers quickly intercepted her and forced her to the ground.
KCAL later broadcast officers seizing a man, who appeared to have changed into a different shirt and put on a hat.
San Bernardino County Sheriff's spokeswoman Jodi Miller said the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department was investigating a case in Chino Hills when the pursuit began, The Press-Enterprise of Riverside reported ( http://bit.ly/WpLBsQ).
