Daily Mail reports:
A truck soared into the air during a chase in Webster Parrish, Louisiana, this week.
Video captured the incredible moment, which took place on Tuesday afternoon.
The vehicle ended up on top of a parked car which had a woman inside.
The person behind the wheel of the flying truck, 18-year-old Kevonte Dekorey Austin, was a work-release program escapee.
The incident comes after the Caddo Parrish Sherriff’s Office said on February 8 that it was searching for Austin.
Deputies said that Austin had been last spotted that day leaving Halco Productions, where he’d been employed, in a stolen truck.
‘He was in jail for car theft and probation violation,’ the sheriff’s office said at the time.
He’s suspected of stealing an employee’s 2009 Ford Ranger, KSLA reports.
Webster Sheriff Gary Sexton told the station that on Tuesday, a deputy stopped a speeding Toyota Tacoma that was reported stolen.
The deputy and the truck’s driver were speaking outside the truck while Austin, who’d been a passenger in the truck, got behind the wheel and drove away, the report said.
The deputy put the driver in handcuffs before going after Austin, the station reported.
Deputies pursued the 18-year-old, with the chase reportedly hitting 115mph.
They laid out spike strips, which the truck struck before going into the air, according to KSLA.
Webster County Deputy Chief Bobby Igo told the news outlet: ‘A block was set up to keep him from going through the intersection at over 100 miles an hour.’
The truck ended up on top of a parked car, which had Barbara Harlon inside.
Harlon, who wasn’t hurt, told KSLA: ‘I saw the underside of a vehicle coming at me, right at my face, and I went to the right, sitting in my car.’
Authorities took Austin into custody.
