Authorities are in pursuit of a stolen vehicle in Orange County. Sky5 is overhead.
Sky5 was overhead just after 1 p.m. as the grey Honda made its way from Santa Fe Springs to La Mirada. Then the car made it way into Orange County, from Fullerton to Anaheim.
The pursuit driver was then going on the wrong side of the 5 Freeway in Anaheim, both on the shoulder and the HOV lane.
The driver then got stuck on the shoulder of the 5 Freeway in Buena Park, as a construction zone came up ahead. The driver paused for a few minutes, apparently waiting to make a U-turn onto the freeway.
The southbound 5 Freeway was shut down in the meantime as police units pulled up near the car.
The driver then backed up and turned the vehicle back into the correct direction on the HOV and shoulder lanes as officers drew their weapons towards the car.
Police were in a standoff with the driver for several minutes, before the Honda got back on the freeway, this time in the correct direction.
