BOYLE HEIGHTS, Calif. — A high-speed pursuit ended with a fiery crash in Boyle Heights, and officers had to rescue the suspect from the burning car.

Police say the suspect got on the eastbound 10 Freeway near Crenshaw Boulevard on Wednesday night. Around 10:30 p.m., KTLA’s Sky5 exclusively captured the car skidding out of control, slamming into a guardrail and bursting into flames near the 60 Freeway.

Pursuing officers approached the car and extinguished the flames. They then pulled the suspect out of the car. Paramedics rushed the suspect to a hospital. Authorities have not released his name or condition.
