WATCH: High-Speed Smuggling Pursuit Ends in Horror Crash, Bailout in Texas

A suspected human smuggler driving a stolen pickup truck caused a ghastly multi-vehicle accident before bailing out and trying to escape on foot, Texas authorities say.

The shocking incident unfolded in Hidalgo County on April 8, but the Texas Department of Public Safety (TxDPS) just released footage captured from the air and ground.

The suspect, identified as Juan David Guzman, was seen dropping off illegal aliens in a red pickup truck near a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint on US-281.

Guzman then led TxDPS troopers on a high-speed pursuit, weaving through traffic and putting other motorists in extreme danger.

As he was approaching a major intersection, he attempted to pass a tractor-trailer, but lost control and slammed into the rear of a small SUV stopped at the light.

The collision sent the SUV crashing into a minivan as the badly damaged pickup rolled aimlessly across multiple lanes of traffic.

Guzman bailed out of the truck and began running but was caught after a brief foot chase.

Troopers later discovered the vehicle had been reported stolen out of Palmview, Texas, where Guzman resides.

He was charged with smuggling of persons, evading arrest, and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

The conditions of other motorists involved in the pile-up are unclear.
