Police are looking for the driver of a stolen vehicle who was caught on surveillance camera slamming into a parked car before bailing and running.

The incident happened around 5 a.m. Monday morning in southwest Little Havana. Video cameras captured the car come speeding down eighth street into a T-intersection.

The loud impact shook up neighbors.

"I woke up this morning with the loudest sound I'd ever heard in my life," said neighbor Andrew Nader. "This is a 3-way street. He slammed the breaks and hit one of my neighbors cars."

Nader says when he went outside to see what was going on, police were already in pursuit of the suspect.

Police say the car that crashed into the truck may have been pursued by police in a chase. An investigation is ongoing.
