Fans of police chases were in for a treat last night when a freeway pursuit of a suspected drunk driver in a red Chevrolet Camaro ended with the car slamming into the sidewall and bursting into flames.

"Smash! Overturned car! Boom! On Fire!" KTLA's reporter can be heard exclaiming.

According to police, the driver's speeds reached well over 100 MPH prior to the collision. Despite the dramatic scene, officers were able to pull the suspect out of his burning wreck alive, and he was rushed to a nearby hospital.

Though it has been several hours since the crash, police have yet to provide an update on the condition of the driver.

Correction: A previous version of this post incorrectly identified the suspect's car as a Ford Mustang.
