A suspect wanted for murder forced police into a pursuit that lasted nearly an hour in Pomona, California and the surrounding area on Tuesday. The chase ended when the suspect slammed into a tractor-trailer at an intersection, resulting in some bizarre images of his arrest and revealing that there was a passenger in the pickup truck as well.

Around the 17:50-mark of the video above, you can see that the driver exited a gas station parking lot and immediately slammed into the tractor-trailer, causing the air bags in the pickup truck to deploy. This stopped the suspect in his tracks. The driver of the tractor-trailer, after moving the semi forward seemingly to block the suspect in, promptly walked off the scene in amusing fashion.

The suspect was surrounded by dozens of cops. He got out of his vehicle with his hands up, got on the ground, and crawled on his stomach until he was handcuffed. It appeared that authorities had laser sights pointed right at the suspect.

The woman, who was taken into custody for questioning and released, was later identified as Roxy Rich. Rich said that she had no idea that the driver from Bakersfield, California was wanted for murder. She said that he didn’t seem like that kind of person.

“He’s an honest man… I don’t know him like that, but I know him enough to know he’s not a person to murder someone,” Rich told KABC. “He had to have a reason to react to an action.”
