RIVERSIDE, Calif. -- Aerial footage from California police captured the moment a suspect involved in two home invasions led officers on a dangerous chase in a stolen Amazon truck.

Video showed the fleeing driver crash twice on a freeway, violently slamming into two separate vehicles.

After the second crash, the suspect got out of the Amazon truck and ran across the freeway lanes. He tried to escape by climbing a wall, but was unsuccessful.

Police then surrounded the suspect, and he was handcuffed on the freeway.

Prior to the crashes, video captured the truck going over a center divider and narrowly avoiding oncoming cars.

He is being held on $1 million bail.

According to the Riverside, California Police Department, the crime wave all started around 5 p.m. Monday when its dispatch center began receiving calls about two separate home invasions at a mobile home park.
