LOS ANGELES (PIX11) — A suspected car thief who crashed into several vehicles and carjacked a woman was shot by Los Angeles police officers in a dramatic end to a high-speed pursuit.

The driver, who was initially not being pursued by police, was weaving in and out of traffic before totaling his possibly stolen car.

He then jumped out of the wrecked vehicle, and stole a woman’s car at gunpoint.

The suspect was shot when he attempted to car-jack another driver.

He was taken to the hospital by ambulance. His condition is unknown at this time.
