Driver arrested after stolen truck chase, crash

Posted: Updated:

RIALTO, Calif. (AP) — The driver of a stolen truck led authorities on an hour-long chase on Southern California freeways before the vehicle flew off an embankment and crashed.

The stake bed truck slammed into the side of an overpass and veered off the elevated shoulder of Interstate 210 in Rialto around 1 p.m. Thursday.

The truck landed on its side, with the driver's door against the ground. The driver climbed out of the passenger window, raised his hands and was taken into custody.

City News Service says police began chasing the truck shortly before noon in Santa Fe Springs, east of Los Angeles.

The chase continued on freeways through Riverside and San Bernardino counties. At one point, the driver went the wrong way in traffic before making a U-turn.
