FAIRVIEW, Ore. -- The driver of a stolen car led police on a high-speed chase from Fairview to Vancouver early Wednesday morning, and traffic cameras caught the entire pursuit on video.

The suspect was pulled over for a traffic violation in Fairview, but quickly sped away, police said. He drove onto Interstate 84, reaching about 120 mph as police followed closely behind.

Police laid down spike strips to stop the driver, but he continued, moving north on Interstate 205 into Vancouver. He exited the freeway on Mill Plain Boulevard, where a traffic camera shows sparks flying from the car just before the driver ditches the the car and runs away.

Police took a passenger into custody and soon found the driver hiding in some bushes nearby. The driver, later identified as Daniel Edstrom, was arrested on several charges, including possession of a stolen vehicle, reckless driving and attempting to elude in a vehicle and on foot.

He was jailed on $40,000 bail and was scheduled to appear in court March 14.
