A woman driving a bread truck in Los Angeles led police on a chase through Compton on Thanksgiving, according to CBSLA.

Police were called around 9:10 p.m. to an intersection where the truck driver was accused of reckless driving. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said she refused to stop for officers and a chase began.

Eventually, the truck stopped near Atlantic Avenue. The driver reportedly jumped out and tried to run but multiple deputies caught up to her.
