ARLINGTON, Texas (KXAN) — A standoff between a suspect in a flatbed semi truck and Arlington police has come to an end.

The man driving the truck led police on a multi-city chase, ending with a standoff that shut down Interstate 30 near Montgomery Street in Arlington, according to NBCDFW. The suspect, whose condition is unknown, hit several cars on the interstate before crashing around 12:45 p.m.

SWAT officers were seen aiming their rifles at the cab of the truck, as other officers tried to negotiate the driver’s surrender.

NBCDFW says the truck is owned by Pesado Transport. The owner of the truck said he didn’t know what was going on.
