A local news reporter in Atlanta found herself right in the middle of a strange scene that turned into a chase and an ongoing manhunt Saturday afternoon -- and the cameras were rolling.
WSB-TV's Liz Artz was among the first to call 911 to report a man passed out and drooling inside his truck parked in a lane of traffic on a local highway known as the Buford Connector.

A Georgia Department of Transportation Highway Emergency Response Operator (HERO) unit arrived and tapped on the window, waking the man up.
"Something was not right about him," a female witness told WSB.

The man appeared agitated by the encounter with a HERO employee, sped off and crashed into other vehicles. In total, five cars were involved in the accident.

Before police arrived, the still unidentified man ran from the car and hopped over a fence -- barbed wire and all.
According to WSB, he hasn't been found.
