Police chases suspect in high-speed pursuit near Phoenix

Driver unsuccessfully tries to carjack motorcycle

A man in a white pickup truck led police on a high-speed chase though the East Valley near Phoenix, Arizona, on Thursday (March 24), before rolling over in the truck on Interstate 10.

Aerials from NBC affiliate KPNX captured the suspect attempting to carjack a motorcyclist, pulling him off of his bike and unsuccessfully fighting him before jumping back in the truck and speeding off.

The suspect was wanted for a hit-and-run earlier this month in Tucson and was driving a stolen truck. The chase ended near I-10 and Riggs Road in Mesa when the truck rolled into oncoming traffic lanes throwing the suspect from the vehicle.

He was then arrested by Department of Public Safety officers.
