A truck driver in California helped end a two-hour police chase after using his large vehicle to close the road where a murder suspect was fleeing

Dramatic video filmed Tuesday night shows the suspect crashing into the front of the large platform piloted by Ahmed Shaaban.

Shaaban was driving near a gas station in Pomona when he saw several police cars following the man behind the wheel of a black pickup truck.

While most of the other vehicles quickly got out of the way, Shaaban drove his big rig straight up the path of the pickup truck to stop the fast chase and help the police catch the driver.

“I looked in my right rearview mirror and saw him coming through the gas station,” Shaaban told Sean Hannity on Fox News.

‘It was really my intention to block the entire section. But by the time my truck responded and he shot his car and I shot mine, we just hit each other.

Hannity called Shabaan a ‘hero’.

Shabaan later told CBS LA: ‘I just waited for the right time and I blocked him and hit him because if I didn’t stop him he would kill someone else’.

According to eOfficers, the man in the black pickup truck was wanted for questioning about a murder in Riverside County. When they tried to question him about the murder, he reportedly flew away in the pickup truck and led a squad of police cars on a wild chase.

Police and TV helicopters hovered overhead during the 120-minute chase.

Fox 11 reports that the suspect is reaching speeds of 90 miles per hour as he ripped along the 60 Freeway to evade the police.

Roxy said she was a friend of the murder suspect, but told reporters she had no idea he was wanted by the police.

“We were hanging out and he said he wanted to help his friend in LA,” Roxy told Fox 11.

‘I said,’ I’m rolling. It’s okay. We’re going to help your friend. ”

She said she was stunned when the police started following them with their siren.

When asked if her boyfriend could have committed murder, Roxy replied, “It could be self-defense.”

While most of the other vehicles quickly got out of the way, Shaaban drove his big rig straight up the path of the pickup truck to stop the high-speed chase and help the police catch the driver.
