WHITEHALL, Ohio (KABC) -- Disturbing video from a police chase shows a 16-year-old jump out of an allegedly stolen car while it was still moving outside Columbus, Ohio Wednesday morning.

The teen appears to open the passenger side door, jump out, and tumble uncontrollably multiple times, possibly hitting a metal guardrail on the shoulder of the freeway. Police dashcam footage witnessed the harrowing moment.

After jumping out of the car, the teen then tried to flee on foot.

Police say he was wearing a neck brace that he got from a previous accident involving a stolen vehicle.
