Officers from the LAPD’s Foothill and Mission divisions attempted to pull her over and began to chase her when she refused, Chong said. The van overturned when the woman attempted to turn right at Laurel Canyon and Van Nuys boulevards, Chong said. She emerged from the van and began running but was soon caught by police officers, Chong said. Police do not believe she was an employee at Apria, though an investigation is continuing, Chong said. “There was some indication the suspect might be under the influence of an unknown substance,” he said. VAN NUYS – An 18-year-old woman went on a 50-minute road rampage during rush hour Monday, using a stolen medical van to slam into at least seven cars and one bus before overturning the vehicle and leading police on a brief foot chase, authorities say. Police and fire officials say at least eight people were injured, and four were transported to hospitals for minor injuries. The chase began about 4:30 p.m. when the woman, whose identity was not immediately disclosed, stole a medical supply van from the Apria Healthcare facility in Van Nuys, said Sgt. Jimmy Chong of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Valley Traffic Division. The woman, who may have been under the influence of alcohol or drugs, began driving erratically – hitting vehicles at Sepulveda and Roscoe boulevards, then along Van Nuys Boulevard at Plummer and Parthenia streets, and Arleta Avenue, causing multiple traffic crashes, Chong said. last_img read more
