LOS ANGELES—Burglary suspects fled authorities at extreme speeds at midday Tuesday before the driver of the getaway car bailed out in a neighborhood in South Los Angeles and his passenger took the wheel, sped away and quickly crashed.

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).
