Crazy Mother Trucker Leads Cops on Wild Chase

4/28/2009 4:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

In one the craziest police chases we've ever seen, a man just jacked a big rig and tore down Interstate 75 in Atlanta -- while the owner of the rig hung onto the back of the truck for dear life.

The owner eventually jumped off the back of the tractor-trailer -- eating serious pavement -- after spike strips were able to slow it down enough for the dramatic escape.

Atlanta police then surrounded the truck, busted out the windows and pulled the massive truck-jacker out -- who decided he wasn't done yet and fought the cops until they finally subdued him.

UPDATE: A Georgia State Patrol trooper was shot during the chase, according to AJC.com. His condition is currently unavailable.
