The moment a man fleeing police tried to escape by climbing onto the top of a semi-truck on a busy highway has been captured on camera.

Footage of the incident was recorded after an unidentified driver crashed his SUV into the median strip of the I-94 in Minnesota.

The woman filming the video from the driver's seat of her car can be heard narrating what is unfolding in front of her during the short clip.

 'So, this guy, umm, crashed his car into the middle of the thing, it's still going, his tires are spinning,' she said.

'He's trying to get anyone to give him a ride, and stopping traffic everywhere. He must be drunk or on drugs.

'I'm a little scared,' she added, before the man was seen sprinting passed her car as a cop followed him.

'Oh my god, s*** is going to get real,' she is heard saying.

'Oh god. He's going to try to get in that truck. Oh, he's hopping up on the truck.

'He's climbing on top of that truck. Oh my god, he's seriously on top of this f***ing truck right now.'

The driver then handed her phone to a passenger in the front seat, who continued filming through the rear window.

A police car was seen pulling up next to the truck, as the would-be escapee was on top of the semi.

The woman then starts to drive away just as the officer runs around to the other side of the truck while the man was seen trying to clamber down.

The person who posted the video online claimed the incident took place on the I-94 in Minnesota, near Alexandria.
