Two suspects in a stolen vehicle led deputies on a wild chase through Palmdale and into Sylmar with a hood blocking the windshield and two tires blown out by spike strips.
By the end, the car was sending off sparks as it was forced to eventually slow down on the 5 Freeway in Sylmar.
The driver jumped out and tried to dodge speeding traffic on the freeway on foot before deputies were able to swarm him and take him into custody as he continued to struggle. One deputy was clipped by a car but appeared to avoid serious injury.
There were reports of gunfire being exchanged between the suspects and deputies early in the chase. After it concluded, paramedics were seen treating the passenger who appeared to have serious injuries.
