WATCH THE VIDEO HERE

A TRUCK driver has been arrested after being captured on video driving dangerously and repeatedly crashing into a barrier while being pursued by police on the Bruce Hwy on the Sunshine Coast this morning.

The Courier Mail reported that police rushed to the scene after receiving reports the truck appeared to be out of control travelling northbound, swerving wildly and almost hitting other vehicles on the highway around 8:30am.

Motorist Dayne Brown caught the dramatic pursuit on camera with vision showing the truck travelling at speed, swerving on to the grass median dividing the highway and into barriers while other motorists dodged the vehicle.

An officer on a motorbike followed the driver for around 15 minutes before he finally exited off the highway at Sippy Downs and pulled over voluntarily.

A police spokesman said the driver was tested for drugs and alcohol when he pulled over and the results came back negative.
