Woman Arrested After Stolen Kia Chase on Wet Freeways, Streets

A woman was arrested at the end of a pursuit involving a carjacking suspect on wet roads and freeways Monday morning in the South Los Angeles area. 

A line of law enforcement SUVs followed the car on the 105 Freeway in Lynwood and into the Compton area. The driver eluded officers in a residential complex parking lot, making a U-turn and swerving around their SUVs. 

The driver exited and entered the 110 Freeway in South Los Angeles as a sheriff's department helicopter tracked the car, identified as a 2008 Kia sedan that was stolen Jan. 12, according to the sheriff's department.

The driver surrendered in the South LA area and was taken into custody. It was not immediately clear whether she was the individual wanted in the earlier carjacking.
