Hollywood Woman Arrested After 14 Freeway Pursuit In Stolen Vehicle

A 24-year-old woman was arrested Saturday after she led law enforcement in Santa Clarita on a brief pursuit on the 14 Freeway in a stolen vehicle.

Carly Cortez, 24, a transient from the Hollywood area, drew attention from California Highway Patrol when they attempted to stop the vehicle she was driving for a carpool violation near Sand Canyon in Canyon Country, according to Officer Josh Greengard, spokesperson for the CHP Newhall area office.

The pursuit continued northbound to Avenue B in the Antelope Valley area, then came back south to Escondido Summit, near where Cortez was stopped.

“One of the Newhall Sergeants waited at Ward Road and had a successful spike strip deployment,” Greengard said.

Cortez was apprehended, and it was discovered that the vehicle she was driving was stolen during a residential burglary in North Hollywood.

With multiple warrants out of King County, Cortez was arrested on charges of evading a peace officer and driving recklessly, and held on  $75,000 bail.
