An Arkansas State Trooper's dashcam caught the harrowing moment a Dodge Challenger brutally collided with a patrol car, forcing police to take desperate measures after chasing a stolen SUV in the rain in this two-fer episode of On Patrol: Live's hit segment, "Crime of the Night."
Host Sean "Sticks" Larkin gives an inside look into the shocking footage in a recap exclusively obtained by OK!.
The first video opens with police on the lookout for a white Dodge Challenger in connection with an ongoing narcotics investigation — and the weather conditions are less than ideal for a potential police chase.
The officer cruises down several roads in the rain, scanning the nearby areas, before spotting the Challenger driving straight towards him. Moments later, the suspect crashes into the patrol car, crushing the front bumper of their own vehicle.
The trooper can be heard radioing in for backup: "Hey, I hit him. He wrecked out. Foot pursuit!"
While the suspect appears to be long gone by the time backup arrives, they are able to confiscate the Challenger.

A second pursuit, also taking place in Arkansas, ends with two different State Troopers slamming into a stolen SUV after chasing the driver down a rainy road in Pulaski County.
The suspect, a 39-year-old man by the name of Wesley Kitchens, is subsequently arrested at the scene and faces charges of fleeing and theft by deception.
