A high speed chase about 30-miles east of Shreveport, Louisiana ended with a high flying crash.

Webster Parrish Sheriff’s deputies were pulling two men over for speeding at 78-mph. During the traffic stop the passenger jumped in the driver’s seat and took off.

Police say the suspect had escaped from a work release program on February 10.

At one point in the chase he was going more than 115-mph when he turned around. Spike strips were deployed and, once the suspect’s truck hit them it went airborne, the truck flipped and landed on the roof of a car in a restaurant parking lot.

Witnesses say it looked like a scene from the 70’s TV show ‘Dukes of Hazzard
