A driver has been shot by police after an hour-long high-speed car chase ended with a crash into another vehicle. Television footage showed the man getting out of his silver Corvette and then clutching his tummy and falling to the ground after officers opened fire. Pictures also showed emergency services treating the suspect on the pavement before he was taken into an ambulance. It is not known what his condition was. The collision took place as the Corvette driver tried to cross a junction in central Los Angeles and appeared to have struck a Nissan Maxima from behind. Police say the driver of the other car ran out of his vehicle after the smash but was later taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The chase and shooting were both broadcast live by KTLA-TV. The pursuit began in Cudahy and involved three separate police agencies - the LA County Sheriff's Department, California Highway Patrol and the LAPD.
