Aerial footage shows police chasing a suspect on an LA highway, moments later the stolen truck is taken over by flames.

Officers from California Highway Patrol tried to stop the driver, who had fled with the vehicle at a gas station in Bakersfield, by deploying a set of spike strips.

The suspect didn't slow down and sparks were seen coming from the vehicle's front wheels. He carried on driving until coming to a stop when almost the entire cab started glowing.

The suspect crossed the San Fernando Valley through a mostly empty highway and tried to run away by foot, but was arrested shortly after.
