The driver was unhurt, but you can tell from the incredible damage to the truck just how violent that crash was when he landed.
A woman in the parked vehicle was able to escape unharmed.
Austin landed on a Barbara Harlon's Toyota Corolla after the truck's leap. "God was with me", he said. "I felt around to see if I was hurt and could tell that I was okay", Harlon told local news station KSLA.
The suspect, who two weeks earlier had ditched a work-release program after finishing his shift, then led the law on a 50-mile pursuit at speeds up to 115 miles an hour, running several officers off the road, the sheriff said.
Both Austin and the driver were taken into custody.
