A high-speed pursuit Monday night through the San Gabriel Valley ended when the driver crashed into another vehicle in Covina.

The pursuit began just before 11 p.m. in Pasadena when a man wanted for a minor traffic violation did not pull over for police.

A pursuit ensued at speeds as low as 30 to 35 miles per hour, eventually moving east through San Marino, Arcadia, Monrovia and into Covina.

The driver made a stop in West Covina for a few minutes, but fled again and picked up speed to about 50 miles per hour.

The pursuit came to an end in Covina, where the suspect T-boned a car at the intersection of Puente Street and Barranca Avenue.

The condition of the victim, a woman, was not immediately known. However, police said she is believed to be alive.

The suspect was apprehended.

The suspect's car, apparently a sedan, is registered to an owner in North Hollywood and had not been reported stolen.

No further information was immediately available.
