Live: Wrong-way stolen box truck driver weaves through PCH traffic in Malibu

The driver of a stolen box truck is in custody after maneuvering through traffic and going the wrong way on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu on a rainy Wednesday.

Police began tracking the business vehicle in the West LA area along the 10 Freeway. The white box truck appeared to have a Lowe’s logo on the side.

Details about the theft were not immediately available.

Footage from NewsChopper4 showed the white delivery truck was traveling at a high speed along the Pacific Coast Highway, weaving through traffic going the wrong way and narrowly missing other cars.

The driver hit at least 80 miles per hour at one point along the wet roadways from the rain to move from LA County to Ventura County.

While an LAPD airship was still overhead, officers in patrol vehicles decided to discontinue the pursuit due to the rainy weather and slippery road conditions. The company that owns the box truck was able to track it using a location device, police said.

At about 12:30 p.m., the driver rammed the rear end of another box truck on the southbound 101 Freeway in the Thousands Oaks area. The two drivers appeared to sideswipe one another on the freeway until the stolen truck driver exited the freeway in Thousand Oaks.

At around 2:40 p.m., CHP announced that they made an arrest.
