Police initially pulled over the driver of the Toyota Tacoma pickup truck as he was speeding down the highway.

Video recorded by a witness showed the pickup soaring through the air before flipping and landing on the roof of another vehicle in a parking lot of a nearby restaurant.

Cell phone video captured a truck going airborne and crashing in Louisiana Tuesday. The truck damaged a restaurant and landed on a woman sitting in her vehicle in the parking lot.

The high-flying ending to the chase in Webster Parish, La., remarkably ended with no injuries and escaped work-release participant Kevonte Dekorey Austin was taken into custody, reports KSLA.

As the driver spoke to the officer outside the truck, the passenger got in the driver's seat and hit the gas.

Barbara Harlon was inside the auto at the time and luckily escaped uninjured by climbing out the passenger-side door.

"I felt around to see if I was hurt and could tell that I was okay", Harlon said.
