(CNN NEWSOURCE)  Cellphone video captured a truck going airborne and crashing in Louisiana Tuesday.

Police say it started when a deputy stopped the driver of a Toyota Tacoma for speeding.

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

He led police on a chase that ended when his truck hit spike strips, swerved, and went flying into the air.

The truck landed on top of another vehicle, but the person inside escaped unhurt.

The suspect - who was an escaped work-release participant - was taken into custody.
