A suspect was in custody following a high-speed police chase of a mobile home in Southern California on Tuesday evening. At one point, a dog was seen tumbling out of the suspect's badly damaged vehicle but appeared to walk away unscathed.

Much of the chase was broadcast live on local television as news helicopters followed the mobile home.

The driver of the motor home was driving at high speeds, ignoring signal lights and other rules of the road. During the pursuit, the suspected stolen vehicle sustained major damage to the passengers side after the driver crashed into a palm tree.

The California Highway Patrol said officers suspected the mobile home had been stolen from the Newhall area of Santa Clarita in Los Angeles County. The driver weaved in and out of traffic on surface streets at high speeds in the San Fernando Valley area. The woman  slammed into a tree and several other vehicles, tearing off the passenger-side door of one car before continuing on.

The driver crashed into a vehicle near a home in Tarzana and ran from the motor home, a second dog following shortly behind her. The woman tried to leap a fence before being tackled by law enforcement.

Police and fire crews were on the scene. Aerial footage showed at least one person injured, lying on his back in the driveway of the home near where the suspect crashed, KABC-TV of Los Angeles reported. He was taken to a local hospital, but the severity of his injuries was unknown.
