BOYNTON BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Four people in a stolen pickup truck end up in jail after hitting a police cruiser and leading other officers on a wild chase.

It all started just before 1 a.m. when a Boca police officer tried to stop a red pick up truck stolen from a Boynton Beach gas station.

The driver of that truck rammed the police car and took off on I-95. That's when several law enforcement agencies got involved.

The driver finally lost control crashing in a Boynton neighborhood. All four men are in custody.

One teen saw part of what happened. "I was just sitting here on the phone. I was like, I saw the helicopter flashing the light at me, and I turned to the left and saw the Dodge truck just come right into the. First, it stopped; then, the cop ran into it, and it ran right into the gate.

No word yet on the condition of the Boca Raton police officer whose cruiser was hit by the red pickup truck.
