Truck Driver Barricaded After Crash / Police Chase

A police chase that started in Fort Worth Friday afternoon ended with a fiery crash and standoff in Arlington. According to early reports, officers tried to pull over a speeding 18-wheeler but the driver wouldn’t stop.

Police chased the possible stolen truck along eastbound Interstate 30. It ended up hitting several vehicles and crashed near Cooper Street. Video showed parts of the truck’s load smoldering along the highway.

Officers could also be seen with their guns drawn in the direction of the truck. It appears the suspect is still barricaded inside the cab. It’s not yet clear if anyone was hurt.

Dozens of onlookers lined the highway and police had to warn them to stay away. Eastbound I-30 is shut down at Cooper Street and traffic is backed up for miles.
