POMONA (CNS) – A man was arrested on the San Bernardino (10) Freeway in Pomona Tuesday evening after leading authorities on a pursuit in a truck he allegedly carjacked following a collision.
Authorities began pursuing the man about 8:55 p.m. in Claremont as he was driving another vehicle that was reported stolen on Monday, KCAL9 reported.
During the initial pursuit, the suspect crashed his vehicle into a construction truck with a trailer attached, then exited his vehicle and carjacked the truck. The man then made his way through Ontario, then into Pomona.
An armored police vehicle managed to pull up alongside the truck as he was driving westbound on the San Bernardino Freeway and pinned it against the center divider, east of the Dudley Street off-ramp.
The man climbed out of the window of the truck and attempted to flee on foot on the freeway, but was quickly subdued by a police dog and taken into custody just after 9:30 p.m.
