"He's coming towards you!"
"I don't see him!"
"Get out of there, he's right next to you!"
This wasn't dialog from the movie "Alien". This is paraphrased two-way chatter during the high-speed pursuit I covered last night.
My first still shot of the pursuit. We're traveling South on the 5 freeway and he's traveling North. This is the third time we've seen him. He keeps making these u-turns and passing us in the opposite direction.
It's a longer story than I have time to blog this morning. We were following this thing for over an hour and it ended halfway to nowhere off the 14 freeway.
I have to be honest. It is exciting to be involved in a police pursuit. We're criss-crossing the freeways and trying to guess which way the suspect is going to turn. It's a big adrenaline rush. I imagine that's why people watch them. It wasn't the biggest story that happened yesterday. It just brings in the most viewers.
Thanks for watching. Gotta run, read the previous post.
