Larchmont was buzzing yesterday after neighbors saw a half dozen police cars speeding down Larchmont Blvd chasing a black Range Rover. According to news reports, the incident began shortly after 12:30 when police began pursuit of a reckless driver and ended about 10 minutes later when the Range Rover driver crashed into a light pole past the intersection of Arden and Beverly boulevards near Larchmont Blvd. The driver was not injured and was taken into custody by police.
Neighbors who drove by the scene told the Buzz they were stunned to see the car engulfed in flames. Traffic along that portion of Beverly was re-routed while the street was closed off.
