(KGTV) - A man accused of leading police on a lengthy, high-speed pursuit in Oklahoma City Friday recorded the incident on Facebook Live.

Sirens could be heard blaring in the background as the man drives the reportedly stolen truck. The man identified himself as the suspect in the chase, yelling, "I'm in a high-speed chase, bro!" out the window at another person.

At least three crashes were caused as a result of the hours-long chase, according to KOCO in Oklahoma.

The chase began on Interstate 240 in southwest Oklahoma City and continued into Moore, OK. The truck lost its trailer while going through a field and at one point another vehicle tried to intervene, pulling alongside the truck and blocking it.
