A truck soared into the air during a chase in Webster Parrish, Louisiana, this week.

Video captured the incredible moment, which took place on Tuesday afternoon.

The vehicle ended up on top of a parked car which had a woman inside.

The incident comes after the Caddo Parrish Sherriff’s Office said on February 8 that it was searching for Austin.
