Surveillance video:July 03/08: A police chase in Portland, Oregon took a violent turn when the suspect's truck veered into oncoming traffic and struck two vehicles Thursday (7/3).
Police were chasing a bank robbery suspect on Interstate 205 when one of them did a pit maneuver on the truck to make the driver stop. The truck veered sideways but instead of stopping, the driver drove across the grassy median and into oncoming traffic.
The suspect's truck hit a vehicle and the back of a semi truck's trailer before coming to a stop. Police cruisers surrounded the suspect's truck.
The driver got out of the truck and was taken into custody. Traffic on the interstate was diverted so police could clear away the smashed vehicle.
Authorities say the suspect and the driver he hit suffered minor injuries.
