An innocent motorist died after a truck driver took his rig on a wild ride through Elizabeth, NJ, that ended in shots fired from police.

According to the New York Post, police went on a chase through an industrial section of the city and opened fire at the truck to try and stop it.

Police officials said the truck hit several parked cars and then hit an oncoming vehicle. Two individuals were injured, and one was confirmed dead.
