COLFAX, Calif. - A wild chase on a North State freeway ended with a dramatic crash and one man behind bars Tuesday morning. 

Deputies say they spotted a pick-up truck reported stolen out of the Rocklin area.

When officers tried to pull over the driver on I-80, near Colfax, they say the driver made a run for it.

He didn't get far, though, crashing the truck and rolling into a tree near Placer Hills Road.

A K9 officer helped nab the suspect, who has not yet been identified.
