We just got the first video of Jake Lloyd's high speed chase and it's INSANE!
As we've reported ... cops say Lloyd hit 117 mph in his Nissan as he swerved in and out of traffic -- and this dash cam video shows him going off the highway, passing people on the shoulder, and kicking up huge clouds of dust in the median.
How he didn't crash into an innocent driver ... is amazing.
The dash cam was mounted in the patrol car of a Colleton County Sheriff's patrol car, and you can see at least 3 other units trying to catch up with Lloyd -- who played young Anakin Skywalker in the 'Star Wars' prequels.
The chase finally ended when Lloyd abruptly turned right ... going off the road and slamming into a tree.
He was arrested and charged with reckless driving, failure to stop, resisting arrest, and driving without a license. He remains in custody.
