The suspect who was wanted for theft eventually got off on Lincoln BLVD from the westbound 10 where an LAPD officer collided with a vehicle. A secondary collision occurred a short time later with another LAPD cruiser.
Both officers in those cruisers were injured and transported to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

A unit trying to catch up to the pursuit collided with a parked Tesla near the corner of Olympic drive and Ocean Ave. That officer was also transported in an unknown condition.
