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.

High clouds are streaming over northern California on this final day of the workweek, and light showers are trying to fall over the mountains. It is warmer today despite the clouds, and it's going to get much warmer soon.
