A police chase that started in Fort Worth Monday afternoon came to a violent end along Loop 820 in Haltom City.

Investigators with Fort Worth police said they were dispatched to the area of East Berry Street and South Riverside Drive for a Flock activation for a stolen pickup.

Flock cameras read license plates and sent instant alerts to law enforcement officers when the cameras identify license plates that match those on lists of cars that are stolen or are otherwise of interest to the police. 

When officers approached the white truck, the driver took off and the officers gave chase.

The chase ended when the driver crashed the truck along eastbound Loop 820 in Haltom City, not far from Rufe Snow Drive.

From Texas SkyRanger, you could see the front driver's side of the truck smashed in.

The driver of the truck received medical attention at the scene but the extent of his injuries is unclear.

Correction: A previous version of this article stated the chase ended in North Richland Hills. It actually ended in Haltom City and NBC 5 updated accordingly.
