The California Highway Patrol is pursuing a driver in a BMW on the eastbound 210 Freeway early Tuesday morning, just after 7:30 a.m.

The driver is wanted for a possible residential burglary in Walnut, according to the LASD Walnut/Diamond Bar station. Los Angeles CHP officers soon took over the chase, which began just after 7:15 a.m.

The chase traveled eastbound through the Irwindale area on the 210 Freeway.

The driver of the black sedan at times drove on the shoulders of the freeway, speeding dangerously close to other cars.

By 7:47 a.m., the driver had taken the exit ramp and was traveling through El Monte on the westbound 10 Freeway at around 60 miles per hour.

Tinted windows made it difficult to determine who was inside the car, and whether it was one person or multiple people.

The driver at times traveled up to 100 miles per hour on freeways, forcing the CHP to cancel the pursuit and move into monitoring the vehicle’s path.

The BMW then made its way onto the southbound 5 freeway.

While trying to maneuver around a car in the leftmost lane by merging onto the shoulder, the driver struck the trunk of another sedan at a high speed, turning that second car completely around on the freeway. The driver of the BMW then sped off from the Commerce area toward the South Gate area, continuing southbound on the 5 Freeway.

Shortly after, the driver tossed something unidentifiable out of the windows, possibly some papers.

A couple of CHP motorcycles continued chasing the BMW driver through to the Paramount area.
