Stolen Big Rig Pursuit Ends in Arrest

A stolen 18-wheeler for a company that transports hazardous waste and other materials led police on a long, high-speed chase down the California interstate Tuesday morning.

A logo on the side of the big rig indicated it belonged to a company that disposes of hazardous waste.

CHP Officer Brian Alvarez said spike strips would be an unlikely option to stop the truck due its size.

Deputies found the vehicle in the unincorporated area of Apple Valley near the town of Victorville at around 10:30 a.m.

California Highway Patrol took over the pursuit as the driver continued onto north on Highway 101 toward Santa Barbara.

The driver reportedly told authorities he is not armed and does not want to go back to jail.
