A police chase began in Burien on Monday evening and ended in Georgetown.

Around 6:40 p.m. Monday, King County Sheriff's deputies attempted to stop a driver suspected of driving under the influence in the 15200 block of 1st Avenue S in Burien, according to the sheriff's office.

The vehicle fled and made its way to Georgetown with several police vehicles from multiple agencies in pursuit with lights and sirens blaring through the neighborhood. Police stopped the vehicle on Corson Avenue near the Harbor Freight store by performing a Pursuit Immobilization Technique, or PIT Maneuver, according to the sheriff's office.

They took the driver, a male, into custody. There were no injuries, but paramedics were called as a precaution for a possibly pregnant female passenger.

The incident remained under investigation Tuesday afternoon. The identity and possible charges the driver may face were not available.
