A high-speed police chase in Texas came to a dramatic end when two citizens ripped the driver from his car and slammed him on the pavement after the man crashed into their vehicle while attempting to evade authorities.
The individual, driving a Dodge Challenger, was being pursued by Dallas police for his alleged role in a robbery when he rammed his car into a van.
The driver of the van then quickly exited the vehicle and, with the help of the passenger, ripped the suspect from his vehicle, throwing him on the pavement. The man was detained until police showed up moments later.
"My goodness," a newscaster for KXAS-TV said as the scene unfolded. "Something I don't think I've ever seen before."

After the suspect was taken into custody, the driver he hit could be seen visibly yelling at him.
According to KXAS, a 14-year-old passenger from the van was taken to the hospital with unknown injuries.
Dallas police later thanked the citizens for their role in bringing the chase to an end.
Thankful that the citizens who held the #chase suspect weren't injured by him. Would never advise you do that. #Adrenaline and #Anger— Chief Max Geron (@Chief Max Geron)1423691448.0
