Two California Highway Patrol cruisers chasing a speeding motorcyclist on Saturday afternoon collided and crashed through the wrought iron gate of a house in La Puente – coming to a stop very close to the front of the house.

“I see two Highway Patrols in the front yard near my mom’s room, and I run to check on her,” said Nestor Rendon, a resident of the home, told KABC-TV. “She was fine, thank God.”

Authorities say California Highway Patrol officers attempted to pull over a motorcyclist traveling west on 10 in the San Gabriel Valley around 4:40 p.m. Saturday, authorities said. The motorcyclist continued and led the pursuing officers off the highway.

At the intersection of Ector Street and Hacienda Boulevard, the CHP cruisers crashed into each other, causing at least one to burst through a house’s white wrought-iron gate and into the front yard. according to news channels on TV. Another car, unrelated to the police chase, also hit a nearby fire hydrant.

No one was seriously injured, a CHP spokesperson said. But the crash was an alarming reminder of how often bystanders are swept up in the chaos of Southern California law enforcement activity.

Los Angeles Police Department officers alone have been involved in at least 4,203 car chases since 2018, according to an April report by The Times. About a quarter (1,032) resulted in injury or death, and people not involved in the chase are more likely to be injured or killed than the fleeing suspect.

An Air Force unit found the suspect, who had ditched his bike and tried to hide nearby. He was arrested around 5:20 p.m
